Sleep in children with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder

O’Brien L. M., Gozal D.


PDF  


Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common psychological disorders in children. Sleep disturbances are also very prevalent among the pediatric age range and can lead to substantial behavioral and cognitive consequences that may mimic ADHD. Conversely, children with ADHD may suffer from significant sleep disturbances that may originate in the biochemical disturbances that underlie their deficits in executive function and attention. This review addresses both these issues and provides a concise yet timely assessment of the potential links between sleep disorders and ADHD.
