I dunno if this book has ever been mentioned here (probably has), but I figure SO many of us here have sleep issues with our kids, it was worth devoting a thread to this particular book.

Sleep Better!: A Guide to Improving Sleep for Children with Special Needs

I found this linked on Kristina Chew's blog, Autism Vox. She says it helped with her son's sleep issues, so I thought I'd post it here and check the book out for myself.

Anyone here read it? Comments?

is it for any specific type of special needs, or just all of them?

Hmm, I dunno. I'll grab it today from the library or from a book store and give a report later.
