NCAST Programs - Promoting Nurturing Environments for Young Children


Sleep/Activity Program    

The newly revised Sleep/Activity Program includes the Second Edition of the Beginning Rhythms manual, the updated Sleep/Activity Record (SAR), and two Parent Handouts on How to Promote Good Sleep Habits. The materials provide information and strategies for service providers and caregivers to understand the importance of developing regulatory behaviors and how their specific caregiving actions affect their baby's self-regulation. The SAR lets them record infants' behavior over a 24-hour period and the handouts help to explain more about healthy sleep habits, typical states of babies' arousal, and suggested routines for infants and young children.
