Sleep: A New Cerebra Guide for Parents
A new guide for parents has been developed by researchers at the Cerebra Centre for Neurodevelopmental Disorders, and the Cerebra sleep team.
This guide has been developed to help parents and carers understand the nature of sleep problems in children with intellectual disability and what can be done to improve sleep. Part one describes common sleep problems in individuals with intellectual disability and how these sleep problems are assessed. Part two gives a brief overview of sleep problems in specific genetic syndromes. Part three outlines some strategies which may help to reduce or improve sleep problems.
