Optimal sleep is linked to enhanced learning, physical health, and behavioral functioning, but addressing sleep issues in children and adolescents with autism remains challenging. This presentation from the 2018 Michigan Autism Conference covers medical and behavioral principles of sleep and then focuses on evidence-based assessment and interventions for pediatric ASD populations. The aim is to equip providers and families with knowledge to identify and address sleep problems effectively.

Optimal sleep demonstrates strong correlations with improved learning, physical health and overall behavioral functioning. Yet, little is known about how toassess and manage sleep concerns in populations at greater risk for sleep problems such as children and adolescents diagnosed with an ASD. The current presentation will be divided into two sections. The first will be an outline of common medical issues related to sleep and basic behavioral sleepprinciples. The second portion of the talk will focus upon evidence-based assessment and intervention specific to pediatric populations with ASD. The primary goal of the session is to arm providers and families with the information needed to identify sleep problems early and provide resources to help with intervention.
