Nakayla Von Raeder
Certified Pediatric Sleep Consultant
& Neurodivergent Sleep Specialist
My son has combined type ADHD. As I was obtaining my sleep certification, I had noticed a common theme. There is a lack of sleep support for the neurodivergent community, but yet a large need for help! Parenting a neurodivergent child can be difficult, I know I'm in the thick of it as well.
I knew that I was called to help other neurodivergent families resolve their sleep challenges. There’s just no overestimating how important good quality sleep is for families, and I’m honored to help.
The Slumber Academy specializes in drawing out root issues that may be interfering with your child's sleep and well-being.
I am a strong advocate of responsive and attachment parenting, and I want my clients to feel heard and valued as we work together. You know your child best.
During my certification I obtained more than 200 hours of training and hands-on experience, along with an additional ADHD and Sleep with Disabilities certifications. I am CPR certified, insured, and take continued education courses every year to make sure I’m up to date on the latest research and methods.
I have hands on experience with ADHD as my oldest son was diagnosed with combined type at 5 years old. I know the Challenges.
Here at The Slumber Academy, we create personalized sleep plans that are evidence and science based. They incorporate factors like sensory integration, nutrition, relaxation and arts and crafts for your child.
I’ll never ask you to force your child to “cry it out” all night. We work together to craft a sleep plan that best suits your family and your child's specific needs. I will make adjustments along the way in order to ensure you are set up for success.
