Good quality sleep allows our bodies and minds to regenerate. People who are sleep deprived are far more likely to suffer from physical and mental health issues. Without enough sleep, our brains cannot function properly.  Seashell offers free sleep support for children and young people with SEND, from 2 to 25 years and their families. Our Sleep Practitioners are trained in the Sleep Charity’s behavioural intervention and have years of experience working with children and young adults with autism, multi-sensory impairment, and learning disabilities.


What type of support do we offer?

The following are some of the courses and workshops designed to support you and your child.

Sleep Success

A half-day course designed to help families understand sleep and consider some helpful tricks and tips that might improve sleep for everyone.

Sleep Better

A 5-week course which offers the content of the Sleep Success course with the added benefit of peer-support and more guidance to introduce new strategies for sleep.

1:1 Clinics

Clinics are available once you have attended a Sleep Success or Sleep Better course.  Clinics offer intensive support over 5 sessions to help you identify and make changes to behaviour that are impacting sleep. 

Sleep Conference for Practitioners

An insightful conference for practitioners who wish to develop their knowledge in good sleep practice.


Who can access sleep support?

You can access sleep support if you or your child are between the ages of 2 and 25.  We can work with parent/carers or the child/young person themselves as appropriate.
