Help us reach better sleep for all children.

Sleep Health in Preschoolers (SHIP) Study


Here at Seattle Children’s, we want to learn more about the healthy development of children with sleep problems, and find ways to help their families.

We are looking for 500 families whose preschool-aged children (2 ½ – 5 years) have trouble sleeping to participate in a 3-year study. If you take part in the SHIP study you will receive free parent education materials and helpful advice, and have opportunities during a home visit and follow-up phone calls to talk to one of our study team members to problem-solve ways to keep your child healthy and developing well.

During the three years of the study, we would also measure your child’s sleep and development at five different points, so that we can see how your child grows, learns, and changes over time. We would also collect some information about you, so that we can understand more about what it’s like for parents of children with sleep problems.
