Sleep in Children with Neurodevelopmental Disorders

Sleep in Children with Neurodevelopmental Disorders

Who can take part?

Parents of children with TSC aged between 2 – 15 years.

Why is this research being done?

We are interested in working with individuals with Tuberous Sclerosis Complex because sleep disorders are particularly common in this syndrome. We hope that this study will enable us to understand any specific sleep problems that children with Tuberous Sclerosis Complex experience, and how these affect parents. This new research project is being conducted by researchers at the Cerebra Centre for Neurodevelopmental disorders at the University of Birmingham.

What will it involve?

We will ask you to complete an online questionnaire about your child's sleep habits, behaviour and information about their health and adaptive abilities. We will also enquire about your own sleep quality and daily functioning. If you prefer, we can provide you with a paper copy of this questionnaire. You will receive personalised feedback regarding your child / the person you care for.
