It could be that you’re a parent or a health care professional. Maybe you support the young person in a school or college.

It has passed ORCHA review and is being used by health and schools and parents. It is unique as it concentrates upon young people and how to help them effectively achieve a restful night’s sleep.

This app has been co-produced with Education and Health professionals. Here is Jan Jenner to explain the background behind the app:

We are indebted to the National Association of Special Schools, especially Claire Dorer OBE, for her support and insight into the development of this app. Without their support and that of partner schools this app would not have been created.

’NASS works with a very diverse range of special schools but we have noted a shared concern about the quality and quantity of sleep that many leaners with SEND are getting. We set out to create a resource that would allow special schools and parents/carers of learners at special schools to think about sleep. The app helps adults assess whether a young person might have a sleep problem and then gives high quality, helpful advice and information and how difficulties could be addressed. It’s great to be able to signpost schools to advice and information that we trust to be accurate and up to date and to improve their confidence in understanding and managing sleep difficulties.’

We have also benefitted from the expertise of Dr Christine Curle, one of our team, who has been involved in the recent developments of the app. We also thank Tabitha Moynagh who has brought her early years knowledge to bear on the evidence-based content. Jane Armstrong has also contributed by bringing her vast breadth of knowledge about sleep and additional needs.

The Sleep Wise app does not collect data – this stays on your device and the data is anonymous. It does offer the opportunity to share the information with others to help find a way forward to assist with sleep problems in children and young people.
