Sleep Intervention in Young Boys With Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD)

key information

study id #: NCT04529707

condition: Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

status: recruiting


This project will systematically plan and evaluate the implementation of the Transdiagnostic Sleep and Circadian Intervention for youth (TranS-CY). As an early stage study, investigators will focus on recruitment strategies to reach the target population and collection of preliminary data on primary and secondary effects of the TranS-CY. Weekly remote (video web conferencing) parent training sessions will allow investigators to explore adoption through parent adherence and examine whether the essential elements of the TranS-CY intervention (e.g., motivational interviewing, goal setting, problem solving, sleep routine scheduling, monitoring) can be consistently taught by clinicians and implemented by parents into the home setting.
