Here’s a helpful guide created by the Slumber Yard team to support children in the ASD community, Autism and Sleep: Empowering Children with ASD for Better Sleep

The pandemic has had an enormous impact on all Americans’ sleep habits, but has been especially hard on children with autism who may already be dealing with sleep-related issues. To help children with ASD regain a healthy sleep routine, this guide features actionable methods for coping with stress and sleep disorder during this time. This Slumber Yard resource also includes printable visual aids to help children get involved, such as:

A personalizable bedtime pass to help children feel comfortable adjusting to a new sleep routine

A customizable bedtime routine with premade tiles to help children with ASD enjoy personally creating their own schedule

Interested in connecting with other Miracle League families for support?

The Smith family, parents of Rockies’ player Blake, would like to share their story of how they arrived at their new normal in their life.

Blake, nicknamed “Scooter”, is a Miracle League 2-sport athlete who not only plays for the baseball Rockies, but also stars on the soccer pitch for the Rhinos.  And that’s not all.  Blake is also a star on the ice at City National Arena, where he plays for the Vegas Golden Knights Junior Adaptive Hockey team (sled hockey).

Chad “the Dad” and Becky Smith love meeting people with similar challenges, and they are anxious to help others reach the NEW NORMAL in their lives.
