Alexander also has autism and a button in place mainly for his medication. Alexander requires regular morning and evening medicine and occasionally requires emergency medication to resolve his seizures.

Your role as waking night nanny will be monitoring him throughout the night, for seizures and wakefulness. Alexander is awake A LOT so he will require gentle comforting to help him get back to sleep.
