You whisper, “Sleep well, honey,” as you shut off the light. You close the bedroom door, and head off to your easy chair. And your child sleeps soundly through the night, waking up refreshed the next morning. For many of us with children who have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), this scenario is a dream that hasn’t come true – yet.

A good night's sleep is vital to your child’s mood and brain function. Studies show that not getting enough rest can worsen ADHD symptoms, leading to loss of emotional control. It can also adversely affect working memory, a problem many of our children suffer from.
