ASD and Sleep

December 6, 2017

Researchers have found that autism can affect the body’s ability to produce melatonin at the correct times, causing autistic children and adults to experience daytime fatigue and difficulty falling asleep at night. Sensory issues in the bedroom can also make it difficult to fall asleep and sleep well throughout the night. Our guide covers these issues in detail and gives some simple, non-prescription options for getting a better night’s sleep.


Sleep Help is a site devoted to spreading awareness of sleep health and wellness. They have created a resource specifically for helping children and adults with autism to get better sleep, which is available HERE.


In addition to this, BestMattressReviews created a guide to common sleep disorders that people with ASD experience, along with some suggestions for getting better rest. 


Their guide covers everything from a comprehensive overview of ASD, how it affects sleep, expert sleep management information for children and adults with ASD and much more.
