Arizona Sweet Dreams Study

The Down Syndrome Research Group (UA Memory Development and Disorders Lab) with funding from the Melinda and Bill Gates Foundation, Grand Challenges Explorations, is conducting a study in order to examine how sleep quality relates to language development, behavior and health.

We are looking for children with Down syndrome, children who were born preterm (less than 37 weeks) and children with siblings who have Autism ages 6 to 24 months.

The study is conducted in your own home, on your schedule, at four time points - once every 6 months starting when your child is 6 months old and concluding when they are 2 years old.

As a token of our appreciation, you will compensated for your time and effort. We will also provide feedback on language, sleep, and behavior variables.

For more information and to become a participant, please contact the DSRG at (520) 626-0244 or
