About the conference

This year our one-day accredited meeting will be held on the 8th April 2014 at the Crowne Plaza Birmingham City Centre. We are pleased to offer an exciting programme provided by a number of national and international experts.

Sleep disorders are common in children and adolescents and are particularly frequent in the presence of disability or chronic illness. As many of the complications associated with sleep disorders are preventable, early diagnosis and appropriate treatment are vital.

This meeting will provide clinically oriented presentations highlighting modern-day principles of assessment and management of children and adolescents with sleep disorders. It will be of particular relevance to general paediatricians, paediatric neurologists, specialists in intellectual disability, child and adolescent psychiatrists, psychologists, primary care staff and others involved in child health, welfare and education.

The aim is to provide essential and up-to-date information on how to identify and effectively treat child and adolescent sleep disorders in order to improve patients' quality of life and that of their families.

The conference offers a variety of themes relating mainly to clinical practice, but is also relevant to research.

Plenary sessions will be interspersed with question and answer sessions and panel discussions. The meeting will provide a valuable opportunity to network, share knowledge and ideas, and consider collaborative projects.


Topics will include

  • Helping parents to prevent infant sleeping problems - using recent evidence to im prove health service practice

  • Recent developments concerning Sudden Infant Death Syndrome

  • Diagnosis and treatment of obstructive sleep apnoea

  • Sleep and circadian rhythm disturbance in adolescents

  • Special considerations in the diagnosis and treatment of sleep disorders in children with an intellectual disability

  • Treatment of sleep disturbance in autistic children

  • Problem sleep in children with traumatic brain injury

  • Update on uses of melatonin in children

Plenary sessions will be interspersed with questions and answer sessions and panel discussions. The meeting represents a valuable opportunity to network, share knowledge and ideas, and consider collaborative projects.
