Dr Andrew Mayers’ research is hit with BBC

Posted on Monday, November 26 2012

BU’s Dr Andrew Mayers was again featured in the media for his research that looks into the sleep habits of children.

Appearing on several BBC mediums, including BBC Radio 5 Live, BBC Radio Solent and BBC1 Breakfast News, Dr Mayers was able to talk about the importance of good sleep and showcase the sleep workshops he runs in conjunction with Winton Primary School.

Speaking on BBC1 Breakfast, Andrew said, “What we would like to do is roll these sleep workshops out across the whole country so that we can train other people to do this so children can benefit from a routine and a consistency of sleep so that it can improve their performance in the classroom.”

BBC Breakfast also went live to Winton Primary School at 7.20am and 8.20am to talk to parents and teachers about the real impact that this research is having on home life and the classroom environment.
