Problems with sleeping are common and make life difficult for the individual who is affected and for those around them. Sleep difficulties are particularly prevalent amongst people with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and can often be the cause of many other problems. This comprehensive guide to the management of sleep difficulties, introduces all the proven remedies and focuses on the problems that are commonly found in ASDs and related conditions. The author discusses sleep in depth, including what it is and how we currently understand it. The full spectrum of sleep disorders is explained alongside their usual treatment regimes. The book also examines why some sleep problems are more common among people with an ASD than others, how sleep problems evolve over time, what can be done to treat them and the likely response from different treatments. This book is a complete resource for professionals who work with those who suffer from sleep problems of any kind as well as families. It will be of great interest to anyone wanting to gain a thorough understanding of sleep in relation to ASDs.
