kt has been hospitalized x2; spent 11 months at Residential Treatment Center (RTC) & then has transitioned home - with a few detours along the way. The one constant has been her day treatment/school setting. While not perfect, it is a wonderful fit for kt. Having said that, over the last 18 months kt has had to be up & moving by 5:30 a.m at the very latest to catch the bus for day treatment. She is currently on break until the day after Labor Day. husband & I are noticing that her sleep patterns are far more natural - in bed & asleep by 10:30 or so. She's slept in until 11:30 the last couple of mornings & woke in such a positive happy frame of mind. Did her list of responsibilities & moved on with her day. kt is of the age where her sleep patterns & being allowed to sleep in the morning is very important. I'm wondering how many of you have noticed with the change in early bus/school start times, the change in your difficult child?
