**This course will provide the participant with 3 General Learning Type BACB® CEUs**
Description of Learning Type CE Event: If you work with families, you *for sure* work with at least a few sleepy children! In this 3-hour CEU you will learn how to combine the science of sleep with the science of behavior to create effective and sustainable sleep-change programs for the families you serve. You’ll discover why many children struggle with falling asleep at bedtime (and maintaining their sleep overnight) along with specific considerations for children diagnosed with ASD. This course is so fun and full of information, you’re guaranteed to walk away with some valuable “uh-ohs” and “oopsies” regarding your own sleep habits as well!
