We are looking for families to participate in our research study of parent training as a tool in treating sleep problems in young children with autism spectrum disorder. This study is designed for parents of preschool age children (ages 2 years to less than 7 years old) with ASD who are also displaying bedtime or sleep problems. The purpose of this study is to determine if our parent training program and parent education program are acceptable and helpful to parents. As part of the study you and your child will be required to complete questionnaires, document sleep habits and attend five sessions all using telehealth technology. The possible benefits of participation in this study are the improvement of your child’s sleep and bedtime behaviors.
