Insufficient sleep and sleep problems are very common in children and teens with ADHD. In fact, half of parents of children with ADHD say that their child has moderate or severe problems getting enough rest. In adolescence, sleep can become more disrupted as biological changes affect circadian function and teens take more control of their sleep habits and schedule.
Insufficient or poor sleep is linked to daytime impairments in children with ADHD: severe inattention, depression, and poorer quality of life and daily functioning. Thankfully, we now have research to help parents better understand the link between ADHD and sleep, and to tap into effective treatments.
Dr. Stephen Becker will dive into the latest research on sleep challenges in children with ADHD and will share evidence-based principles for solving them.
In this webinar, you will learn about:
- The prevalence and types of sleep problems in youth with ADHD
- How shortened sleep duration may cause daytime problems for children and teens
- How sleep problems may present differently in children and teens
- Cognitive and behavioral strategies to improve sleep in children and teens
