Here is the first bit of research to come from this project

I have recently been in touch with a few of you regarding the first bit of work to come out of this project. The questionnaire that you completed was made up of:

The Child Sleep Habits Questionnaire,

The Child Behaviour Checklist,

The Spence Children's Anxiety Scale, and

The Behaviour Rating Inventory for Executive Functioning.

It is a LOT of data to get through, but somewhere in there we can find out with a fair amount of certainty what role sleep plays in childrens' emotion and behaviour.

I have put the Child Sleep Habits Questionnaire and the Spence Children's Anxiety Scale into a statistics calculator. Because of the huge numbers of people who responded (thank you once again), we can see a number of correlations between sleep and anxiety in children with and without FASD.

In fact we can even make a regression calculation (calculate how much sleep can create how much anxiety).

The results were that sleep problems can predict around 30% of the anxiety in FASD, and around 20% of the anxiety in typically developing children.

In particular, separation anxiety had the biggest effect on sleep in children with FASD.
