This study was led by Dr Anna Joyce at Coventry University in collaboration with Dr Dagmara Dimitriou from the Institute of Education, London.

We know that in typically developing children poor sleep contributes to problems with learning. Children with Down’s syndrome often have sleep problems, particularly breathing difficulties during sleep, but we don’t yet know whether these affect their learning and development.

Summary of findings.
