What is Sleep Tight?

Sleep is vitally important to support children’s development and well-being. Sleep deprivation affects behaviour, learning, health, mood and the functioning of the whole family. The Sleep Tight programme uses specific behavioural and cognitive techniques to help parents/carers modify night time behaviour.
