We learned the best tip at our very 1st Angelman Conference 15 years ago: Change Matthew’s bedroom door to a dutch door!  Matthew and Dutch Door

It is the safest place in the house for him, he can play, have privacy and when he does not sleep we know he is safe! Thanks to his dutch door, he sleeps in a regular bed and has room to roam.

Part of his nightly routine includes; diffusing therapeutic grade Young Living Essential Lavender in his room an hour prior to sleep and an Epsom salt bath with a few drops of Lavender.

We love “pure” therapeutic grade lavender because it assists with sleep and allergies as it is a natural antihistamine.
