Research on sleep in children with autism spectrum disorders shows that:
Prevalence of sleep problems is 44-83%, including prolonged time to fall asleep, decreased sleep duration and continuity, and increased arousals and awakenings (Richdale, 1999)
IQ does not predict prevalence or severity of sleep concerns in ASD (Richdale, 1999; Patzold, 1998)
Studies indicate most common sleep concern is insomnia – difficulty initiating or maintaining sleep
Neurochemistry, additional medical issues and environmental conditions all play a role in the child’s sleep
