Children with autism can have trouble sleeping for a number of reasons.
They can be more sensitive to light, textures, and noise.
Some children with autism have low muscle tone, or other problems, and that can cause breathing disruption or contribute to sleep apnea.
And some medications can affect sleep.
Sleep problems aren't forever, but you can do lots to help.
