Reverie Sets Webinar on Sleep Benefits for Children
Adjustable bed producer Reverie is hosting a webinar this week that focuses on the impact of sleep on a child's academic success.
Set to begin at 10 a.m. ET Thursday, the 45-minute webinar, "Back-to-School Sleep Strategies," will be led by Dawn Dore-Stites, a clinical psychologist who specializes in adolescent sleep issues. She will discuss the benefits healthy sleep can deliver for children and the detriment of sleep deprivation.
The company said the educational push is part of its commitment to working to improve sleep hygiene for children and parents. Both groups rank among the most sleep-deprived segments of the population.
The latest webinar is part of Reverie’s "Sleep is the New" campaign that focuses on all aspects of sleep and the benefits healthy sleep delivers.
Webinar attendees will learn about the impact sleep has on learning, growth and mental health as well as how to pinpoint signs that children are not sleeping well or getting enough sleep. Dore-Stites will also outline specific solutions for helping children get the right amount of sleep to be successful.
“We know the impact a good night’s sleep can have on productivity and success, and there’s no back-to-school supply more important for strong academics as a good night’s sleep,” said Martin Rawls-Meehan, president and CEO of Reverie. “Parents sometimes miss the message that smart sleep is a key component to healthy children who are successful in the classroom. We hope to get this important information to parents by educating our retail partners on good sleep hygiene.”
A national speaker on pediatric issues, Dore-Stites holds a doctorate in clinical psychology from Western Michigan University. She is a faculty member at the University of Michigan Medical School, where she works primarily with children and teens struggling with sleep issues.
Dore-Stites is also mom to a busy toddler, which gives her first-hand knowledge of sleep deprivation.
