Does your child have trouble sleeping because they get too hot and sweaty? 

Sue McCabe, Senior OT and Sleep Solutions Specialist at Ability Centre, is conducting a world-first study for children with cerebral palsy who have sleep problems because they get too hot. 

Sue has been running a clinical trial of the special bedding, as part of her PhD studies, and is seeking final group of ​participants. The trial will take place over 8 weeks during Term 3 and each participant will receive special 'thermoregulation bedding' to test.
