$64,269

Sleep disorders are well-known problems in AS. ASF has been interested in funding projects which develop intervention strategies and extend the knowledge gained from previous work done on sleep disorders in AS. With this in mind, this project studies families of older children with AS who have sleep disorders. It provides in-home and clinic assessments in an attempt to help delineate successful practices for treatment of sleeping problems.
