A team of researchers from the University of Queensland and Children's Health Queensland are looking for parents and carers of children and young people to take part in a study focusing on sleep issues in children with neurodevelopmental disorders. 


Who can participate?

Parents and carers of children and young people with neurodevelopmental disorders who experience sleep issues.


Who is organising the study?

Associate Professor Jasneek Chawla is a paediatric sleep specialist with Children’s Health Queensland and leads the Paediatric Sleep & Respiratory Research Group. She and her research team are conducting a survey to understand what types of sleep issues children with neurodevelopmental disorders experience and what their families’ priorities are around sleep for their child.


What you need to do to participate:

A survey consisting of 4 brief linked questionnaires, which in total should take no more than 15-20 minutes to complete.


Why participate?

Sleep issues in children with neurodevelopmental disorders can have a huge impact on quality of life for families but little research attention has been given to this area.
