PDA & Sleep


The PDA Society and The Sleep Charity have worked together to develop this resource about PDA & Sleep which is based on our sleep survey results and the lived experience of PDA people and sleep practitioners.

This 4 page resource covers the key difficulties people told us they experience around sleep and their tips on what helps; further advice from The Sleep Charity; and information about sleep and the circadian clock based on extracts from ‘Sleep Misfits’ by Sally Cat.
