Sleep Awareness for schools
Sleep is soon to be part of RHSE curriculum and Hunrosa is already developing schools ready to meet the challenge. Sleeplessness in the case of young people can create behavioural problems and impact learning as well as mental and physical health. Sleep disorders can be linked to children who have a diagnosis of autism or ADHD. After lockdown, sleeplessness has increased.
Hunrosa’s resources are tailored perfectly to professionals working in education.
Sleep awareness training will equip schools and colleges:
• The impact of sleeplessness
• How to improve poor sleep, with a specific focus on sleep and behaviour
• Sleep and certain medical conditions
