Sleep Problems

Sleep problems include insomnia, bedtime resistance, parasomnias (including sleep walking, sleep talking), sleep anxiety, and daytime sleepiness. On-going sleep deprivation can be harmful to an individual’s health, wellbeing, daily functioning and quality of life.  Research at ICAN has revealed that a high percentage of individuals with autism experience sleep problems which can exacerbate behaviour problems, hyperactivity and anxiety.  Supported by the EU-funded Marie Curie ASSISTID programme, we have developed assistive technology solutions to deliver personalised sleep interventions to families.
