Webinar Objectives:

  • Learn about the basics of sleep
  • Learn about NDDs and sleep disturbances
  • Learn about the impact NDDs and sleep disturbances have on caregivers and family members
  • Learn about intervention and management strategies


In this basic training, participants will develop a working knowledge of the causes, symptoms, and risk factors of neurodevelopmental disorders (NDDs) like autism spectrum disorder (ASD), attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD), and intellectual disabilities (ID), and learn how their presence increases the risk for sleep disturbances. Participants will review empirically-based research findings to learn of the consequences this creates for the individual and their support system. Participates will also explore screening and intervention considerations.
