Children with Autism often have unusual sleep patterns. Some children appear to require little sleep and others may refuse to sleep alone. These issues may relate to sensory sensitivities such as fear of the dark or over-sensitivity to household and external noises. They may also resist the change from sleeping close to parents as a baby to sleeping alone in a room. As with many skills, for a child with Autism, it may be necessary to teach sleeping skills and/or to modify the environment to establish a routine that will accommodate the whole family’s needs at night time.
As a parent, it can be frustrating, as you may have other children and jobs to do during the evening. However, it is important to stay calm yourself. Be persistent and consistent. Make sure that what you are doing with your child is shared with other adults who put him/her to bed so that the same routine is carried out nightly.
