Call to action
If you are a child with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) with sleep difficulties, or a parent/caregiver to one, please consider participating in our study.
Who can participate
Children between 3-6 years of age with a diagnosis of ASD and difficulty falling asleep. Child and Parent must both be able to communicate in English.
Note: Parents/Caregivers must also participate if their child wishes to participate in this study.
The study will last a total of 2 weeks and involves using the bedtime routine application on a study-provided tablet each night before bed. Parents will be asked to complete three questionnaires about their child and about the bedtime routine application. At the end of the study, there is a 20-minute debrief interview with parents (and children, if they are available) over the telephone or Zoom, to find out more about users experience with the bedtime routine application. A study tablet will be mailed to participants at the start of the study, and a pre-paid shipping label will be provided to return the tablet at the end of the study.
