Managing Behaviour and Sleep Problems in Disabled Children: An investigation into the effectiveness and costs of parent-training interventions: Appendix A - Rapid Reviews

Research output: Other contribution


This is the first element of the project. It comprises two rapid, systematic reviews of the evidence on the effectiveness of behavioural interventions to help parents of disabled children manage their child's sleep or day-time behaviour problems (McDaid and Sloper, 2008, Beresford, 2009). Both reviews concluded that there was evidence to suggest that parent-training interventions based on behaviour theory and behaviour modification principles may, for at least some parents of disabled children, be effective.
