New Paper on Sleep and Media Use Published in Pediatrics

We recently published a paper in the journal Pediatrics describing the relationship between screen-based media use and sleep in boys with ASD, ADHD or typical development.

The article can be found on the journal website:

The paper has also been featured on the Autism Speaks website, and in several media outlets.
