Elliott isn’t able to fall asleep tonight

Elliott is having one of those nights where he’s unable to fall asleep. Melatonin isn’t even helping tonight.

He’s not bouncing off the walls or anything like that. He’s simply laying in bed, unable to sleep. At this point, I told him he could watch Netflix on his tablet for a little bit. I’m hoping that’s enough of a change to help him fall asleep.

I’m going to try and stay awake until he dozes off but I’m really tired.

He’s not going to leave his room without waking me up, should I fall asleep. I’m not sure if this is an ADHD thing or not. Be will complain about too many thoughts in his head, but like I said, he’s very calm.

Do any of your kids with Autism and/or ADHD have a hard time falling asleep at times? Have you found anything that helps?
