Dr. Lynelle Schneeberg
Dr. Lynelle Schneeberg is a pediatric sleep psychologist, an assistant professor at the Yale School of Medicine, and the director of the behavioral sleep program at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center. As a fellow of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, she is one of only about 200 board-certified sleep psychologists in the country. She is also a mom of three, so she knows both professionally and personally how important it is to help kids become great sleepers. Most sleep books are aimed at parents of babies and toddlers but Dr. Schneeberg's book was written for the parents of school-age children. A striking 80% of preschooler parents say that their children’s sleep needs improvement, but these parents can’t use the sleep methods that work for babies. Dr. Schneeberg details her 5-step guide that was developed from years of experience working with families and from her training in sleep medicine, so it is both evidence-based and experience-based.
