Hello, I’m Holly Jefferd, the Founder of Tiny Sleepers Big Dreamers. I am happily married to my husband of 7 years and we have 2 little humans (ages 4 years, and 7 months). We reside in the country on our 4 acres just east of the GTA.
I started in the field of Applied Behavior Analysis in 2007, specifically providing Intensive Behaviour Intervention to children with Autism Spectrum Disorder which included, but was not limited to, acquisition based programs and behavioural remediation.
Sleep became my passion over 4 years ago when I found myself hiring 5 (yes, FIVE!) sleep consultants to teach my little man how to sleep. I learned that teaching an infant or toddler the skill of sleep is simply behavior modification, but in a new exciting way to me!
I have worked closely with Dr. James Porter, C. Psych for 9 years now, and I continue to be mentored by him to provide my clients with clinically supervised plans and strategies; especially those strong-willed toddlers.
I look forward to helping you and your family get a full night sleep again!
My commitment to you
My commitment to you is simple: I will work hard with you during our 14 days together; it will be hard work, but I will be there to support you at every step, and the results will be well worth it!
LAURA LEDERMANCertified Infant & Toddler Sleep Consultant
Hello, my name is Laura Lederman. I am beyond thrilled to be part of Tiny Sleepers Big Dreamers! I have been with my husband for 6 years and we have a very energetic little boy who is NOW an amazing sleeper.
I began my career in the field of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) in 2000, providing Intensive Behaviour Intervention (IBI) therapy to children with Autism worldwide. I have been very lucky to have my career be my passion and to see firsthand how behavior modification literally changes lives.
Fast forward 12 years, I had our son and I couldn’t get him to sleep longer than 3 consecutive hours for the first year of his life. I was one of those mommy “walking zombies” that you hear about and don’t truly understand what it is until you experience it yourself. After working with a wonderful sleep coach, my passion to expand my career to include sleep coaching was ignited. After learning about baby sleep science (it really is a science) and applying what I have been doing for 17+ years, I now have honour of helping families receive the same gift I once received ……….the gift of sleep.
I look forward to working together so that everyone in your home is getting the full night’s sleep they deserve!
