About Down's Syndrome : Sleeping Well Thinking Well; do changes in sleep affect executive functioning in children with intellectual disability?

Sleeping Well Thinking Well; do changes in sleep affect executive functioning in children with intellectual disability?

We are looking for children aged 5-11 with special educational needs, who live in or around Coventry, to take part in a study. We want to see whether good and bad sleep have different effects on children’s ability to solve problems and pay attention. You will measure sleep at home using our equipment, and we will visit your child to do some fun tasks. Your child will receive a book or toy as a thank you gift. Six months later we will ask you to repeat the process.

Further information here.

If you have any questions and/or would like to take part, please contact Dr Sheena Au-Yeung sheena.au-yeung@coventry.ac.uk
