Sleep Issues and Sensory Processing Disorder

A Sensory Life!

Sleep affects the whole family...possibly the sibling who shares a room, or even in a separate room and of course at least one parent. We ALL need sleep, so when our little precious sensory kiddo isn't sleeping, it affects the whole family. And the biggest problem is the snowball effect. When any of us do not get enough sleep it impacts mood, behavior, and self-regulation overall. And then as always, the results are magnified for a sensory kiddo. And for the parent of the child, this state of dysregulation (irritability, mood swings, impatience, etc) from lack of sleep impacts that child's state of regulation as well. It's a double whammy.
