The study of sleep problems and treatment of sleep problems has advanced in recent decades although many areas of the sleep process and function remain disputed. However, the advancement of sleep research is unparalleled in the area of intellectual disability. This paper reviews the available literature on sleep and treatment of sleep problems in people with an intellectual disability alongside relevant research using other client groups. Studies indicate that sleeping problems are commonplace in adults with an intellectual disability. Their disability appears to make the impact of sleeping problems more severe with a number of daytime correlates. However, preliminary evidence, backed by evidence from other client groups indicates that a psychological treatment of their sleeping problems is an efficacious one. The author suggests that this group may be particularly well served by targeting sleeping problems.
