Why support sleep? A good night’s sleep paired with a consistent, healthy bedtime routine can change the trajectory of a child’s education and therefore their life. Our brains organize and consolidate memories of what we learned throughout the day into permanent regions while we sleep. Sleep deprivation can cause or worsen ADHD symptoms. Additionally, sleep is essential for growth and development, immune system health, maintaining a good weight and overall heart health.
