Is your child overtired? Cranky? Does he/she take forever to get to bed? Join us for a “Beat the Struggle with a Bedtime Routine” workshop on Tuesday, October 23, 2018 from 4:00PM to 6:00PM at the Trott Access Center – Room 2R located at 1001 11th Street, Niagara Falls, NY 14301. Childcare will be available for those participants who register by October 16, 2018. To register, please call (716) 408-2589. “Sleep is one of the most fundamental requirements for healthy growth and development in young children,” stated Daniel Stapleton, Public Health Director. “All parents and caregivers are welcome to participate and become empowered with effective strategies for helping their children sleep,” stated Lisa Chester, Director of Children with Special Needs Early Intervention Official. “We especially encourage families enrolled in early intervention to participate,” she emphasized. 

The session is part of the 2nd annual free parent workshop offered by the Niagara County Local Early Intervention Coordinating Council (LEICC), in collaboration with the Western New York Early Childhood Direction Center (ECDC) 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, please contact Janice Jenosheck Children with Special Needs Division at the Niagara County Department of Health at (716) 278-8168.
