Sleep problems in children and young people with neurodevelopmental disorders

This is one of a series of end of grant reports from Cerebra Centre for Neurodevelopmental Disorders (CCND) explaining the focus of their work and their achievements for the project period 2014 – 2019.

Researcher’s experience was that sleep problems were common but neglected and that poor sleep may be related to both daytime behaviour in children and parental wellbeing. The Centre’s research aimed to identify parents’ priorities in this area, work out how to assess the most severe sleep problems in children with complex needs and describe the possible causes of poor sleep.
