Sleep Focus

Autistic Project


We have designed this project because many autistic individuals have informed us about experiencing sleep problems. As a result, we want to learn more about these sleep problems in autistic adults and provide ways that may help improve sleep. Throughout the project we will be working collaboratively with a number of autistic advisors to search for the best sleep related solution/s.


We will be inviting autistic adults (18-85 years) to complete a survey which will help us gain a better understanding about sleep and how it relates to health. The survey will be ready by the end of October and we will post the link here and on our social media. Paper copies will be available upon request.


If you are interested in future studies on this project or research in the lab in general we’d love to hear from you. If you are an autistic individual, a parent, an academic, a professional or simply intrigued, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
