She has over 22 years of experience and devoted her practice to improving the sleep habits of children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder since 2010. Emily’s company Ready Set Sleep, provides education, CEUs, sleep program development, and individual consultation to families seeking support with their child’s sleep.
