Helping your child to sleep

Sleep difficulties occur in approximately 48-70% of adopted children compared to roughly 25% of the general child population. We have put together this booklet which includes information about why adopted children may be more vulnerable to sleep difficulties and some of the strategies that families have found useful with their child or young person.

The information included in this booklet is based on the latest research investigating sleep difficulties in children who have been adopted and/or exposed to early trauma.

Coram’s partnership with Kent County Council aims to deliver a range of therapeutic post adoption support to children, young people and families throughout Kent County.
