Free Webinar Replay: Sleep Solutions for the ADHD Brain

In this hour long webinar on demand, learn sleep solutions for the ADHD brain with Mark Stein, Ph.D.

Research shows that three-quarters of adults and children with ADHD have problems sleeping. Sleep disturbances and disorders are one of the most common comorbidities associated with ADHD. Existing research suggests an overlap between the symptoms and features of ADHD and the neurobehavioral and neurocognitive effects of sleep disorders. ADHD affects the quality of sleep, and poor sleep adversely affects ADHD symptoms — it is a vicious cycle.

Making diagnosis and treatment more challenging for clinicians is the fact that sleep disorders can mimic ADHD. Here, Dr. Mark Stein will inform you about the impact of poor sleep on ADHD throughout the lifespan and offer strategies for assessing and managing treatment.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • The prevalence of specific sleep problems related to ADHD in children, adolescents, and adults
  • Reasons why children with ADHD are poor sleepers and resist sleep
  • Methods of assessing sleep problems
  • The effects of stimulant and non-stimulant medications on sleep
  • Behavioral and environmental strategies to improve sleep in ADHD families
  • Strategies for managing stimulant-exacerbated insomnia
