Study About Helping Young Children Sleep Better

This study is comparing different ways to assist parents in helping their young children sleep better. When young children sleep better, parents and other caregivers often sleep better.

Participation in this study is completely voluntary. If you do not want to be involved with this study, all regular and standard medical care will still be available to you through your practice and Nationwide Children’s Hospital.

Please look at these eight questions:

  1. Does your child have any problems falling asleep or staying asleep?
  2. Are you interested in learning about a study that may help your child sleep better?
  3. Do you have a DVD player?
  4. Do you have internet access?
  5. Do you have regular access to a telephone?
  6. Do you live in the same household as this child for at least 4 nights per week?
  7. Is your child 6 months to 36 months of age?
  8. Do you want your child to sleep independently? (Independently means he or she sleeps outside of your bed AND needs as little help as possible to fall asleep and stay asleep).

If you answered “yes” to all 8 questions, please call Julie Holbrook, Research Assistant, Nationwide Children’s Hospital at (614) 722-2529. She will ask you a few more questions to see if your family qualifies and will let you know more about the study. If she does not answer the phone, please leave your name, telephone numbers, and good times to reach you on her voicemail.
