Telehealth Help for Sleep in Young Children with Autism

We are looking for families to participate in our research study of parent training as a tool in treating sleep problems in young children with an autism spectrum disorder. This study is designed for parents of preschool age children (ages 2 years to 7 years) with autism spectrum disorder who are also displaying bedtime or sleep problems. The purpose of this study is to determine if our parent training program and parent education program are acceptable and helpful to parents. As part of the study, you and your child will be required to complete questionnaires, document sleep habits, and attend five sessions using telehealth technology.

To be eligible to participate:

  • Child must be between 2 and 7 years of age
  • Child must have a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder
  • Child must have bedtime or sleep disturbance
