Can you help research into sleep in children with vision impairment?

University College London (UCL) is running a research project into sleep and children with a vision impairment aged between 5 and 11 years, and is looking for participants.

Researchers are recruiting any child with a vision impairment (ranging from partial sightedness to blindness) and also sighted children aged 5-11 years. The study explores sleep and sleep-related issues using actigraphy (a motion sensitive non-invasive wristwatch), sleep diaries and parental report questionnaire. The sleep diary is to be kept for a minimum of 5 nights if possible and the actigraphy is optional but it does help! Participants do not have to go to London, as the actigraphy watch can be posted and the research team can communicate via Skype or telephone.

If any parents/carers might be interested in their child(ren) participating, please contact either Jessica Marshall at or Dr Hayton at Parents and participants will then be provided with further information.
