Sleep Help Institute

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. Please follow the link to find out more.
