Sleep Consulting

Koalaty Sleep Consulting (Erin Van Engen) 

As a pediatric Physical Therapist Assistant, I work mainly with 0-3 years old and some older children as well. In these early years babies are learning and developing so much and so quickly, and sleep is crucial to that. In the older years, sleep is just as important for healthy activity levels, happy attitudes, and appropriate social interaction. Sleepless nights are not just a given, or a right of passage into parenthood and you do not have to just wait and hope your child grows out of it. Right from the start there are ways to teach your baby healthy sleeping habits which they will take with them as they grow to be better sleeping toddlers and older children! Whatever age your child is, let’s get started teaching them independent sleep habits so your whole family can enjoy a well-rested, happy and healthy life!
