Participants needed for Sleep Related Research Studies!
The Cleveland Clinic, along with other medical centers, are conducting 2 VIRTUAL research studies about sleep in children with ASD. Check out the goals and eligibility requirements below:
Telehealth Delivery of Treatment for Sleep Disturbances in Young Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder
We are recruiting young children (ages 2 up to 7 years) with autism spectrum disorder and sleep disturbances. Participants are randomized either to 5 sessions targeted parent training program for sleep problems or 5 sessions parent education program where they are provided knowledge relevant to parenting a child with autism. The possible benefits of participation in this study are the improvement of the child’s sleep and bedtime behaviors.
Measuring Sleep Problems in Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder
We are currently looking for parents to participate in an assessment, which we can do remotely. The purpose of this study is to get a better understanding of sleep problems in children with ASD. We will use the information to develop a new measure for sleep problems in children with ASD.
Families may qualify to participate if they have a child with ASD between the ages of 3-12 with a current or history of sleep related problems, and has not started a new medication in the past month.
