Sleep Disorders and Treatment for Children

Physicians and psychologists estimate that as many as 30% of children may have a sleep disorder at some point during childhood. Sleep disorders have implications both for social-emotional adjustment as well as for school performance. For this reason, it is important for both parents and educators to understand how sleep works and how disruptions in normal sleep patterns can affect children and teenagers.

While most sleep disturbances are mild, fairly common, and fairly easy to treat, others may be more stubborn, or may show signs of potential physical problems that could have long-term consequences if left untreated.
