    Hi and welcome 

    Sorry your son isn't sleeping have you discussed this with health visitor or gp 

    We have a parents and carers section  may have some tips on there 

    My son was good sleeper used yo put him down awake with his TV on timer and he just dropped off in his own time 

    I know its not everyone's choice to let them have tv on maybe some background music 

    Good luck hope you get it sorted

    Welcome to the community @stacey_riley :) Thanks for joining. 

    I'm sorry to hear that your son doesn't sleep very well. As Janer1967 mentioned, we have a parents and carers category. I've moved your post in there, and renamed it slightly so that other parents can find it more easily. 

    You may also want to check out Scope's Sleep Right service. The service is available to families with disabled children aged:
    • 2 to 18 in London and Leeds
    • 4 to 18 in Peterborough
    • 2 to 19 in Northamptonshire
    If you don't live in any of these areas, then you can still benefit from the Sleep Right team's expert advice. You can find out how to listen to their podcast here, containing top tips on getting your child to sleep. You can also read some top tips for a blissful bedtime that they wrote up for the community, centred around the themes of calm, connect, choice, and consistency.

    It's great to hear you've applied for Sleep Right @stacey_riley :) I can only imagine how tiring it must be. You're doing a fantastic job. 

    Do you mind me asking whether your son has any sort of diagnosis?

    Of course @stacey_riley. You're free to vent and ask for advice here any time you need to. 

    Some of Scope's other family services may be of help if you haven't looked into them already, such as Navigate or Parents Connect.
