Helping Your Autistic Child Sleep Through the Night

Ensuring a good night's sleep for your autistic child can be challenging. Here are some tips to help them rest better.

Create a predictable bedtime routine that includes calming activities. Consistency helps signal to your child that it's time to sleep.

Establish a Consistent Routine

Ensure the bedroom is quiet, dark, and cool. Use weighted blankets if your child finds them comforting. Remove any sensory distractions.

Create a Comfortable Sleep Environment

Reduce screen time at least an hour before bedtime. The blue light from screens can interfere with the natural sleep cycle.

Limit Screen Time Before Bed

Practice relaxation techniques like deep breathing, gentle stretches, or listening to calming music. These can help your child wind down and prepare for sleep.
