AGENDA

Day One:

8:30-9am: REGISTRATION SIGN-IN

9am-11am: SLEEP FOUNDATIONS

  • Typical sleep development 0-5 (terminology, sleep schedules, sleep patterns, regressions, and the sleep impact on developmental milestones)

  • Gestational Contributors to Sleep Regulation (perinatal mental and physical health, gestational experience, epigenetics, substance exposure, pregnancy complications).

  • Early Experiences of Nurture & Attachment (post-partum experience, co-regulation & parental self-efficacy, infant response to caregiver, neurological benefit of parent assisted soothing).

  • Safe Sleep Guidelines and SIDs (guidelines explained, modification based on family values, SIDs vs accidental death, resources for increasing sleep safety in infancy).

11:00am-11:15am: BREAK

11:15am-1:00pm: NEURO-DEVELOPMENTAL SLEEP STAGES

  • Primary Regulation Level: (primitive brain systems and nervous system regulation, co-regulation needs, at-risk groups).

  • Sensori-motor Level: (connection between motor skills and sleep, sensory requirements, typical vs disrupted sleep movement, feeding/appetite factors).

  • Emotional Processing Level: (nightmares/night terrors, separation anxiety, stress impact on cortisol and melatonin production, emotional supports for sleep needs).

  • Cognitive & Executive Functioning Level: (collaborative sleep strategies, communication around sleep routines, preparation for transitions).

1:00pm-2:00pm: LUNCH (provided)

2:00pm-4:00pm: THE WHOLE-BODY SLEEP SYSTEM

  • Nutrition: (sleep nutrients, supplementation recommendations, symptoms of nutritional deficiency in sleep patterns).

  • GI/Digestion: (gut micro-biome, irregular bowel movements and sleep disruption, laxatives and malabsorption, candida overgrowth symptoms in sleep).

  • Respiration: (breathing conditions affecting sleep, impact of steroids and medication on sleep quality, allergies and over-active histamine production).

  • Skin: (external reactions to internal systems, interoception, pain/discomfort sleep disruption).

  • Brain Health: (sleep structures in the brain, nocturnal electrical activity, AED sleep side-effects).

 

Day Two:

9:00am-10:00am: DEVELOPMENTAL CONDITIONS AFFECTING SLEEP

  • Neurocognitive Conditions: (autism and sleep disorders, comorbid systemic issues in autism dx, affects of sleep supplementation of melatonin, ritualistic sleep behaviors).

  • Sensorimotor Conditions: (motor disorders, rhythmic movement disorder, self-injurious bx, vision impairment, deaf and hard-of-hearing children, adaptive sleep equipment).

  • Genetic Conditions: (risk factors for sleep, down syndrome/cri du chat/angelman syndrome and comorbid sleep issues, respiratory and GI considerations).

  • Trauma: (elevated stress response, reprocessing trauma through sleep, trauma-informed sleep strategies).

10:00am-11:00am: MEDICAL CONDITION AFFECTING SLEEP

  • Pre-Term Birth: (neurological impact, sleep safety concerns, growth and nutritional supplementation, hyper-response to stress). 

  • G-Tube Feeds: (GI distress symptoms, digestion in sleep, oral microbiome).

  • Sleep Apnea: (types of apnea and at-risk groups, symptoms in sleep, treatment options, monitoring options).

11:00am-11:15am: BREAK

11:15am-1:00pm: PEDIATRIC SLEEP & DEVELOPMENT SCREENER (SLEEP TRIANGLE)

  • Sleep Triangle: (systemic factors, sensory factors, and behavioral factors)

1:00pm-2:00pm: LUNCH (provided)

2:00pm-4:00pm: SLEEP PLAN BUILDER & CASE STUDY ANALYSIS

  • Sleep Goals: (parent-interview, common sleep-behavior goals, small-group case study discussion and sleep plans).
