Sleep, or lack thereof, can be a problem for many people, but it can be a significant issue for those who have FASD. The aim of this presentation is to understand sleep disruption in FASD and discuss some practical approaches to managing sleep. This workshop will be of interest to parents, caregivers, and service providers.
