At the completion of this webinar, participants should be able to:

  • Recognize the four groups of sleep disorders in children with disabilities; those fragmenting sleep (dyssomnias), those causing sleepiness (hypersomnias), those causing sleeplessness (insomnia) and those during which children do daytime behaviors in their sleep (parasomnias).
  • Understand children with disabilities have more vulnerabilities in these areas.
  • Describe a standardized approach in sleep history-taking.
