Some good news

March 27, 2020

Thank you to everyone who took part in the FASD Sleep Project. As some of you may know this project is looking at childhood sleep patterns in children with FASD, in comparison to neurotypical children. The first piece of research to come from this study was published yesterday in the Journal of Research in Developmental Disabilities:

Around 100 caregivers took part in this questionnaire, which makes this the largest study on sleep in FASD. We found that sleep duration and quality is a direct predictor of anxiety in children with FASD. 

 

The aim of this piece of work is to outline how important sleep is in this population and raises our chances of securing funding in the future on intervention strategies. Hopefully this can encourage practitioners to consider sleep intervention strategies as a therapeutic priority.
