Dr Rosalba Courtney – Optimizing Sleep & Breathing for Improved Learning & Behaviour

July 28 @ 6:45 pm-8:45 pm

A$15.00

Dr Rosalba Courtney

Optimizing Sleep & Breathing for Improved Learning & Behaviour

Getting enough sleep and the right quality of sleep is fundamental for healthy brain function. Sleep impacts on working memory and many other cognitive skills. Many children diagnosed with ADHD show major improvements in learning and behaviour when sleep is improved. Some sleep problems are caused by obstructed airways and sleep disordered breathing.  Improving a child’s breathing can be the key to improved sleep and also to better brain function, learning and behaviour.

In this lecture Dr Courtney will talk about the key factors that disrupt sleep and share strategies for improving sleep through various means, including improved breathing.

Dr Rosalba Courtney DO, PhD

Rosalba is an osteopath, naturopath and breathing expert who practices in Avalon and Edgecliff and runs Healthy Breathing Healthy Child workshops in these locations. She is internationally recognized for her research, teaching and clinical expertise on the psychology, physiology and importance of breathing dysfunction and breathing therapy.

She has been working with children for many years and is passionate about working with fundamentals such as sleep and breathing to help them reach their full potential as healthy happy adults.
