Do you have a child with autism spectrum disorder?
Is your child between the ages of 2 and 8 years?
Would you like to participate in our current research study?
Researchers at Case Western Reserve University are looking for families to participate in their research study of sleep in young children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
The purpose of this study is to identify how physical activity impacts sleep and how sleep impacts challenging behaviors and parental stress in young children with ASD.
As part of the study you and your child will be asked to complete online questionnaires, a brief education session through Zoom, and sleep and activity monitoring at home using a small wrist-watch device.
The study will be delivered via online/virtual format so families do not have to travel. Families will receive up to $50 in Amazon e-gift cards to compensate for their time.
To be eligible to participate:
• Child must be between 2 and less than 8 years of age.
• Child must have a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder.
• Child must have a parent/caregiver who is > 18 years of age and is proficient in spoken and written English.
The data from this study will be used to inform future studies to improve sleep in children with ASD.
