Abstract

Sleep is incredibly important for healthy physical, behavioural, and cognitive development throughout childhood. In a world of 24-hour distractions, sleep research with children is of the utmost importance. In this chapter, we consider the methodological tools available to the paediatric sleep researcher, as well as some practical considerations associated with the use of each of these with developmental samples. We then discuss how sleep varies amongst atypical developmental populations, and how to employ each tool in order to obtain optimal data, whilst remaining sensitive to the specific sets of difficulties associated with atypical populations.
