Better Nights Better Days to Launch Clinical Trials of Sleep Intervention Date Posted: Thursday, July 14, 2016
Sleep researchers Penny Corkum and Shelly Weiss are customizing an evidence-based sleep intervention, "Better Nights Better Days" (BNBD) for children with neurodisabilities.
Several weeks before launching a randomized controlled trial of BNBD for typically developing children with sleep issues, such as difficulty falling asleep and repeated waking, Drs. Corkum and Weiss convened a June 27/28 meeting in Halifax to discuss program adaptation and intervention methods for children with autism, cerebral palsy, FASD and ADHD.
The sleep team is now contacting partner organizations, healthcare professionals, and families of children with neurodisabilities to stimulate recruitment for a clinical trial slated to begin in 2017.
Canadian families with typically developing children aged 1-10 facing sleep challenges can still participate in the BNBD-TD project, due to launch August 1, 2016.
