The promotion of healthy sleep in caregivers of children with disabilities is critical to the functioning of families. Navajo caregivers were interviewed about their obstacles to healthy sleep. Following educational sessions, caregivers developed Sleep Plans and included strategies to improve sleep. This study suggests that strategies that change daytime habits and bedtime routines are helpful in improving sleep quality and quantity, regardless of challenges in the sleep environment.
