A conference to look at group interventions that help parents of disabled children manage their child's sleep and behavioural problems is taking place in York on Monday 25th February. The conference will hear directly from the inverventions' authors about how the training works to help these parents. It will cover four behaviour management interventions and one sleep management intervention. All the interventions are delivered in groups. They are all currently being delivered in England. All interventions have been specifically developed for parents of children with ASC and/or disabilities. Evidence on the effectiveness of these interventions and parents’ experiences of receiving such support will also be presented. Refreshment breaks during the day provide an opportunity to meet intervention authors and view conference manuals. Suitable for all professionals who help parents of children with disabilities. The conference is being run by the Yorkshire branch of the Association for Child and Adolescent Mental Health. It follows from the evaluation of these schemes by SPRU in 2011.
