Lecture on sleep and cognition in children with developmental disorders

Sleep is not simply an inactive state, but a necessary physiological process that can influence health and cognitive functioning of a child. Sleep disturbances are common in children with developmental disorders, yet relatively little is known about specificity and causality of sleep problems.

In this talk, Dr Dagmara Dimitriou, senior lecturer in the Institute of Education at the University of London, will present studies examining sleep-related learning and endocrine sleep profiles of children with Williams syndrome and Down syndrome. This will be followed by a Q&A session.
