Tyagi, Vernika; Juneja, Monica; Jain, Rahul – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2019
Sleep problems were studied in both typically developing (TD) children and those with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) using the Sleep Disturbance Scale for Children. Factors associated with these problems were also studied in children with ASD. Seventy-three children with ASD and their age and sex matched TD controls in age group of 3-12 years were…

Hatch, Burt; Nordahl, Christine Wu; Schwichtenberg, A. J.; Ozonoff, Sally; Miller, Meghan – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2021
The Children's Sleep Habits Questionnaire (CSHQ) is often used to assess sleep in children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), but little is known about its factor structure in younger children with ASD. We evaluated alternative factor structures and measurement invariance for CSHQ items in 2- to 4-year-olds with ASD or typical development (TD).…

Philbrook, Lauren E.; Vaughn, Brian E.; Lu, Ting; Krzysik, Lisa; El-Sheikh, Mona – International Journal of Behavioral Development, 2019
Many young children experience insufficient or poor quality sleep, which may have implications for adjustment and cognitive performance. This study tested group-level changes and rank-order stability in both daytime and nighttime sleep parameters over a six-month period, from fall to spring, among children receiving high-quality, center-based…

Mazurek, Micah O.; Dovgan, Kristen; Neumeyer, Ann M.; Malow, Beth A. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2019
The chronicity of sleep disturbance and its relation to co-occurring symptoms in children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) are not well understood. The current study examined longitudinal relations among sleep and co-occurring symptoms in a large well-characterized sample of 437 children with ASD assessed at baseline and follow-up (M =…

Abel, Magdalena; Haller, Valerie; Köck, Hanna; Pötschke, Sarah; Heib, Dominik; Schabus, Manuel; Bäuml, Karl-Heinz T. – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2019
Retrieval practice relative to restudy of learned material typically attenuates time-dependent forgetting. A recent study examining this testing effect across 12-h delays filled with nocturnal sleep versus daytime wakefulness, however, showed that sleep directly following encoding benefited recall of restudied but not of retrieval practiced items,…

Joyce, Anna; Hill, Catherine M.; Karmiloff-Smith, Annette; Dimitriou, Dagmara – American Journal on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, 2019
Sleep plays a key role in the consolidation of newly acquired information and skills into long term memory. Children with Down syndrome (DS) and Williams syndrome (WS) frequently experience sleep problems, abnormal sleep architecture, and difficulties with learning; thus, we predicted that children from these clinical populations would demonstrate…
