By using convenience sampling method, 30 mothers of children with symptoms of learning disability and sleep disorders were selected and randomly were divided in to two experimental groups and one control group (n=15). The tools of this study were the contents of symptoms of learning disabilities in Pre-school children (Steele) and children’s Sleep Habits Questionnaire. The experimental group received 8 sessions of intervention. The Participants of both group responded to questionnaires, before training, at the end of training, 1 month after the end of training.
