Abstract
Children with motor disabilities such as cerebral palsy or neuromuscular diseases present more sleep disorders than their typically developing (TD) peers. However, research on these populations has always been performed using historical normative datasets or controls such as siblings. Therefore, we assessed the sleep quality of children with motor disabilities in comparison with a large, contemporary, general population sample.
Demographic, medical, and the Sleep Disturbance Scale for Children (SDSC) questionnaires were sent to parents of children aged 4-18 years and followed by our tertiary pediatric neurorehabilitation clinic, and to those of school-aged children in regional primary and secondary schools. TD participant data allowed us to set pathological sleep score thresholds (T score ≥70).
We collected 245 responses for children with motor disabilities and 2891 for those from the general population (37% and 26% response rates, respectively). Cerebral palsy was the most frequent diagnosis (N = 109, 44.5%). Children with motor disabilities had significantly more frequent pathological sleep reported in their total SDSC score (7% vs 1.9%, odds ratio (OR) 3.98, 95% confidence interval (CI) 2.17-7.27, p < 0.001) and in five subscores. Single-parent households and drug-resistant epilepsy showed significant positive associations with pathological sleep among children with motor disabilities. For TD peers, parental unemployment and parental nationality were positively associated with pathological sleep.
This population-based study robustly estimated the prevalence of sleep disorders in children with motor disabilities. Sleep disorders were significantly more frequent in children with motor disabilities, but at a lower frequency than previously reported.
