Dr. Ferber sleep lecture

The Concord Museum is honored to present Dr. Richard Ferber for a lecture and book-signing at The Fenn School (516 Monument Street, Concord) on Thursday, November 20 at 7:00 p.m.

Sleep expert Dr. Ferber explores the latest sleep techniques for babies and young children. Dr. Ferber is an associate professor of Neurology at the Harvard Medical School and Director of the Center for Pediatric Sleep Disorders at Children’s Hospital in Boston. He is currently on the editorial board of the journal Sleep and is an associate editor of Sleep Medicine. Solve your child’s Sleep Problems by Dr. Richard Ferber will be available for purchase and the lecture will be followed by a book-signing.
Parents, caregivers, and grandparents throughout the ages have struggled with sleep deprivation and sleeping issues in infants and toddlers. This is a rare opportunity to learn about the often controversially perceived Ferber Method by its’ author. Often mis-labeled as allowing babies “to cry it out” Dr. Ferber will demystify his approach. FREE but reservations are required; online at concordmuseum.org or by calling 978 369 9763 x 216
