Experience of including people with special educational needs and disabilities

Family Fund (www.familyfund.org.uk )

In 2013 the Family Fund produced a report into sleep deprivation amongst families of disabled children called “Tired All the Time” This report was driven by the many requests that the Family Fund received from families for sleep support and by the feedback from other organisations and services providing sleep support to families of disabled children. In the report one of the key findings is that parents often do not know where to go to seek help with sleep issues and therefore the report recommends that: “Sleep Services should be listed in the Local Offer (England) and in signposting services for families of disabled children in local areas. Families should know how, where and when to access such advice and support services”.

 The full report can be accessed through the following link:
