The view that children with special needs are more likely to experience sleep disturbances is well recognised. various physical and psychological factors associated with the child’s condition, as well as the influence that the child’s disability has on parents’ attitude and management, combine to increase the likelihood of the child developing sleep disturbances. However, these factors should not act as a barrier to trying to find successful solutions.
