Sleep Monitoring Workshop
Dr Anna Joyce, Lilas external collaborator, visited the Lilas team at IOE and delivered a workshop on non-invasive sleep monitoring for toddlers, children and adults with neurodevelopmental disorders.
Anna drew from her rich experience as the theme leader for the Sleep research group within the Brain, Belief and Behaviour lab at Coventry University.
First, Anna explained the importance of sleep research and the ways we can improve achievement & quality of life for individuals with neurodevelopmental disorders and their families.
Then she explained different ways we can measure and analyse their sleep such as actigraphy, pulse oximetry and cardiorespiratory polygraphy.
