Our Projects

Sleep disturbance affects children with developmental disabilities universally however, there are currently very few research teams internationally who are investigating treatments for sleep disturbance in children with developmental disabilities, or providing much needed clinical services. Our goal is for children and their families to experience the primary (sleep) and secondary (wellbeing) benefits of improved sleep and as a team, we aspire to inform future clinical practice in this area.

Our unique and innovative research programme includes a number of projects with an overarching focus on five overlapping areas:


Telehealth-delivery of sleep interventions


The effectiveness of behavioural sleep interventions


The role of biology and learning in sleep


Collateral benefits of sleep treatment


Parent experiences with assessment and treatment
