There are many things you can try to help him get more sleep:
1. Melatonin supplement (ask his doctor)
2. Magnesium Supplement (I find Natural Calm works best)
3. Weighted blanket
4. Essential oils
5. blackout drapes
6. Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime EXTRA tea

My son is 15. He listens to videos to fall asleep. He struggles more to fall asleep in the quiet.
