Bedtime Pass: Getting Kids To Go To Sleep

Like Autism Live on Facebook at

Board Certified Behavior Analyst Angela Persicke explains how a bedtime pass can help get your child to bed and keep them in bed. This technique of giving a child a diminishing number of tokens which can be exchanged for a limited number of trips out of bed has been shown to be effective at curtailing those endless trips out of bed for children both on and off the spectrum. It’s easy to follow, efficient and inexpensive.
