?who all knew the answer to last week's trivia question:
According to recent research published by Effective School Solutions (that polled 200 administrators and 1,000 parents with children in K-12), parents are less confident in their school’s ability to deal with students facing these issues than the administrators, yet most say schools should play a role in helping their kids. Only 40% of administrators said they had a high level of confidence in their ability to deal with this crisis in their schools, compared to 16% of parents. Nearly 1 in 10 administrators reported not being confident at all compared to nearly a third of parents. Top concerns for both parents and administrators were identifying needs and having enough staff to support students with these issues. What are the issues of concern?
Answer: MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES
This Week's Trivia Question: Getting a good night's sleep is important for children's learning and development. When young people don't get enough sleep, it can impact their mood, school performance, health, and behavior. The impact of sleep on quality of life is a force everyone can relate to. For children with autism, a poor night's sleep can have even more far-reaching impacts on not only the child's mental health, but on the mental health and stress levels of parents, too. Common behavioral difficulties parents report include dyssomnias (problems going to sleep), parasomnias (problems waking up overnight), and early morning waking. These problems tend to persist if they are not treated effectively.
According to the latest research, up to what percentage of children with autism have trouble with their sleep?
