Sleep issues with my son with CP

My first name is Alma and Mum to Alfie who is nearly 3 yrs. Alfie was diagnosed with CP a year ago. He has a mild form of CP and is doing really well. The problem I am facing at the moment is sleep. Alfie has always been an excellent sleeper until about 4 months ago. He can get out of bed up to 15/17 times a night. He has a bedtime routine which has never changed. Do anyone else have this with your child and do you have any tips. Thank you
