Behavioural interventions to help parents manage sleep problems in young disabled children

C McDaid, P Sloper

Research output: Other contribution


Sleep problems are common and persistent in disabled children. However, many families do not receive help to deal with the problem. A rapid review of evidence on the effectiveness of behavioural interventions was carried out.

Evidence was identified on three different behavioural approaches which were carried out by parents at home: interventions using multiple behavioural techniques (non-specific behavioural interventions), extinction, and sleep restriction.
