Session Description

This fully virtual session will focus on the following key areas:

  • Understanding the Importance of Sleep in Early Childhood Development: Providers will gain insights into the fundamental role of sleep in supporting brain development, emotional regulation, and overall physical growth. The presentation will highlight the long-term implications of sleep deficits and the benefits of promoting healthy sleep habits from an early age.
