SLEEP – Sleep intervention for children and adolescents with neuropsychiatric disabilities

The aim is to investigate sleep in children with neuropsychiatric disabilities and how it affects the child's well-being (longitudinal design) and to evaluate a sleep intervention with a weighted blanket for children with neuropsychiatric disabilities and sleep problems (RCT design).

There are limited studies on the health effects or health economic benefits of sleep interventions for children with neuropsychiatric disabilities. There are also no uniform patient-reported measures (PROMs) or patient-reported experience measures (PREMs) for sleep in this patient group that can be used to promote informed decisions in Sweden.

The project intends to contribute to a better understanding of relevant and valid methods for evaluating health-related outcomes, sleep and cost-effectiveness in interventions on children with NPS and sleep problems.
