WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
“It is with the greatest pleasure that I bring your attention to the ZzzPower Sleep Program and its related educational materials.
This program is founded on sound science and clinical experience. As a child and adolescent psychiatrist, I commonly encounter children who experience sleep difficulties. These can lead to mental and physical health problems if not addressed.
This program, with its resources for educators, age-appropriate materials for youngsters, and advice for families, represents state-of-the-art in sleep science. That it is packaged in a format friendly to busy teachers, parents, and children is part of its secret to success.
I encourage you to read through the materials and give the lessons and advice a try.”
