Description

Characteristics of sleep and sleep problems were investigated in 43 individuals with 11q terminal deletion disorder (Jacobsen syndrome). Data were collected using a sleep questionnaire. Ten individuals (23%) had a sleep problem. Settling problems, frequent night waking and early waking occurred in 2 (4%), 7 (16%) and 2 (6%) individuals, respectively. Twenty-two individuals (54%) had a history of sleep problems. Twenty-five individuals (60%) showed restless sleep and 23 individuals (54%) slept in an unusual position. Apart from frequent coughs, no significant relationships were found between the presence of a sleep problem and other variables, such as age, level of ID, breathing problems, heart defects, constipation, daytime activity and behavioral diagnosis, restless sleep and sleeping in an unusual positions.
