If you have a child with autism, you may know that sleep disturbances are very common among autistic individuals. C had a sleep study before he was diagnosed with autism and – surprise! – they didn’t find anything. He was just a 2-year-old who sat up and cried, while still clinically asleep, rolled around, talked, yelled, kicked and punch the air, and woke countless times throughout the night. He sleeps so lightly that you might ask him a question and he’ll answer you.
