Sleep problems effect more than a quarter of all children in early childhood and can have a negative impact on a child s daytime behaviour and also their ability to concentrate and learn. Understandably it can also lead to family stress and take its toll on the parent-child relationship. These problems are also more common in children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), with reports of up to three quarters of this population experiencing some sort of sleep disturbance in the early years.
Kids love stories and can be great visual learners, especially children with ASD, so using a story starring themselves can be a super effective way to encourage positive sleep patterns in children. When we talk to families about what makes it hard for them to sit down and write a good story to help encourage better sleep patterns in their child, they mostly say the time factor but it is also knowing what to write that is a major factor too.
Based on this, Little Star Early Learning decided to make a bed time story app that takes the guesswork out for families. The Sleepy Time Story is already written for you - you just need to tailor it to suit your child's individual needs.
Features include the ability to insert photos from your camera or album (use iPad square photo setting for best integration with pdf and visual supports-see below), edit your text, record audio, edit saved stories (up to 8 stories), and share stories in PDF format via email.
With the added bonus of being able to share your story via email you can send copies to other family members, preschool or school as well as easily make photo visual supports and schedules. You can also make up to 8 stories in case you wanted to address more than one skill.
The App also has its own tips section with some extra information on encouraging better sleep patterns for your child and we have included some app extras on our website to help you along the way too.
With consistency and patience, many children and families have benefited from the use of a story and the strategies discussed in this app to make a positive change in their child s sleep patterns and family wellbeing.
