Caregiver Reports of Sleep Problems on a Convenience Sample of Children with Fragile X Syndrome
Kronk, Rebecca; Dahl, Ronald; Noll, Robert
American Journal on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, v114 n6 p383-392 Nov 2009
Caregivers reported on sleep in a convenience sample of 90 children with fragile X syndrome utilizing a standardized assessment tool, the Children's Sleep Habits Questionnaire (CSHQ), and a 14-day sleep diary. CSHQ data indicated that 47% of participants had sleep problems at a level that suggested referral and further evaluation. Sleep diary data indicated high rates of several sleep problems. These problems did not appear to follow a typical developmental trajectory and were not related to gender or demographic variables. Nineteen percent of the sample was currently receiving medication to improve sleep; however, there were no significant differences between those receiving medications and those not receiving medications.
