While most children say they get to sleep within 30 minutes of going to bed, for 20% it takes between one and two hours before they doze off and 8% take over two hours.

They are provided at no cost to B.C. teachers, school counsellors and other educators and will be available in two developmental levels, grades K-3 and 4-7. "Providing this support is the first step in helping kids build life-long coping skills".
