        (If not please refer to adult services)
2.      Is referral being made through agreement of
        consultant paediatrician or consultant child
        and adolescent psychiatrist?
        (We can’t accept direct parent referrals or GP
        referrals)
3.      Have common illnesses that impact on sleep
        been excluded. (Reflux/asthma/eczema etc)
4.      If there are daytime concerns about
        development or behaviour (eg possible autism
        or ADHD) has a referral to appropriate child
        development team or child and adolescent
        service been made?
5.      Have the parents been supported (by
        telephone or in person) through a behavioural
        sleep intervention?
        (There is a long waiting list for this service and
        although we should only be seeing the most
        severe disorders, in as many as 20% of
        children referred a behavioural intervention
        locally would have improved sleep.
        Organisations such as Sleep Scotland run
        comprehensive sleep training programmes.)
