Solving Sleep Problems in Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders is based on a multi-year study of sleep in children with ASDs which concluded that parent training was the key to resolving sleep problems. The authors show parents how to evaluate both daytime and nighttime habits and routines; exercise, lighting, caffeine consumption, bedtime preparation, sleep environments to identify causes of impaired sleep and make necessary modifications. Parents are then taught to use strategies, social stories, visual schedules, visual cues, and rewards, to help their child get ready for bed, fall asleep, and stay asleep.
