Abstract


Although sleep problems are often seen as a clinical feature associated with autism, and children with autism are reported to have more sleep disturbances than typically developing children, there is a paucity of studies in the area and findings are restricted by problematic methodological approaches. The present study addressed these limitations, with parents of children with autism (as defined by two independent indices of the disorder) reporting more difficulties with sleep for their children than did parents of typically developing children on seven of eight sleep problem domains assessed. The methodological advances implemented are seen as supporting the reliability of the findings, and the need for further refinements to advance the understanding of sleep problems in children with autism is discussed. 10.1177/10883576060210030301
