Thu, Oct 4th 2018 03:50 pm
Is your child overtired, cranky or does he/she take forever to get to bed? Join the Niagara County Local Early Intervention Coordinating Council for a "Beat the Struggle with a Bedtime Routine" workshop from 4 to 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 23 at the Trott Access Center - Room 2R, 1001 11th St., Niagara Falls.
Childcare will be available for those participants who register by Oct. 16. To register, call 408-2589.
"Sleep is one of the most fundamental requirements for healthy growth and development in young children," said Daniel Stapleton, public health director.
"All parents and caregivers are welcome to participate and become empowered with effective strategies for helping their children sleep," said Lisa Chester, director of Children with Special Needs Early Intervention Official. "We especially encourage families enrolled in early intervention to participate." 
The session is part of the second annual free parent workshop offered by the Niagara County Local Early Intervention Coordinating Council, in collaboration with the Western New York Early Childhood Direction Center and the Niagara County Department of Health Children with Special Needs Division. Participants in the workshop will learn the importance of establishing routines regarding their child's bedtime and have the chance to create a schedule of activities to complete as part of the routine to get their child ready for bed. 
The Local Early Intervention Coordinating Council is a group of stakeholders who meet at least four times per year and reports annually to the Early Intervention Official on the adequacy of the Early Intervention system to ensure the availability of family-centered, coordinated services and links with other existing planning bodies that service similar populations. 
If you have additional questions about the workshop or about the LEICC, contact Janice Jenosheck of the Children with Special Needs Division at the Niagara County Department of Health at 716-278-8168.
