Sleep is critical for child health and well-being. The reality in today’s society is that many children, especially children with neurodevelopmental disorders (NDDs), are not getting enough sleep to optimize their daytime functioning. Also, tired children can have a negative impact on the entire family. This presentation will provide an overview of sleep needs, sleep problems, the impact of not getting enough sleep, and what can be done to help children with NDDs sleep better. Dr. Corkum will share information about the development and upcoming randomized controlled trial of Better Nights, Better Days for Children with Neurodevelopmental Disorders (BNBD-NDD); an eHealth intervention developed by a pan-Canadian team of pediatric sleep and NDD experts.
