Sleep Intervention for Pediatric Epilepsy

Brief description of study

The purpose of the study is to develop and evaluate a sleep intervention program for improving sleep and health in youth with epilepsy and their parents.

Detailed Study Description

Sleep problems are more prevalent and serious in children with epilepsy whose sleep can be disrupted by seizures occurring during the night and/or during the day. Inadequate sleep has long been recognized as a trigger for seizure and poor sleep habits have been associated with unfavorable outcomes in children with epilepsy. Attention to sleep in children with epilepsy as a result is critically important for seizure control and health-related quality of life.
