Abstract

Date Presented 4/17/2015

This research contributes to the evidence supporting the effectiveness of an occupational-therapy-designed, parent-educational program for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) regarding sleep preparation/sleep participation. Parents report sleep disturbance as a major concern. Occupational therapists (OTs) are uniquely qualified to address these many issues.
