This chapter will cover three commonly associated problems experienced by children with ASD and their families: Feeding disorders, Sleep disturbances and Toileting issues. Children with ASD commonly present with food-related difficulties. It has long been a widely held belief that children with ASD commonly experience poorly regulated sleep patterns and habits. More than half of parents of children with ASD report toileting and urination problems. Each of the three sections in this chapter will describe the problem area, methods of assessment, and treatment options.
