Next week I will be presenting at the EU FASD Conference in Berlin. Over the past year I have been looking at the link between sleep, cognition, emotion and behaviour in children with FASD. Our theory is that the less a child sleeps, the more impact it has on their daily function - it sounds like common sense - and we have 'known' this for centuries, but this has not been scientifically measured yet. In fact, scientists cannot yet explain why we sleep. It has something to do
Thank you to everyone who has taken part in the study so far. I have been inundated with questionnaires all year and I apologise for the amount of time it is taking to get back to you all individually! But I am getting through everyone and am going to be sending reports to every person who has filled in my questionnaire. Thank you for your patience.
