SleepdreamsTM sleep consultants provide sleep help for your infant, toddler, or child initially in your home. We offer home consultations in the Greater Vancouver area. Other areas in BC and Alberta are offered consultations by phone or skype.
As Registered Occupational Therapists, many extended health care plans recognize and cover the cost of our services. Check with your benefits provider to see if Occupational Therapy is covered or if you have a health care spending account with your benefits.
Your occupational therapist will arrange to meet with you and your family. The consultation will take an hour to an hour and a half. Your occupational therapist will conduct specialized paediatric assessments of your child as they pertain to sleep disturbances. Your occupational therapist will make recommendations on the sleep environment, daytime and night time strategies, schedule changes, feeding suggestions, and developmentally appropriate play activities, all of which assist with sleep. These recommendations are provided in a written report. Your occupational therapist will help you create a chart of your goals for your child’s sleep. Through interview and meeting with the parents your occupational therapist is able to adopt strategies that work in harmony with your goals and values.
