Is there a correlation between difficulty sleeping and ADHD?
Is there a correlation between babies who have a difficult time sleeping and ADD/ADHD? – Janice
Thanks for your question, Janice. No, there usually is not a correlation. Sleeping disturbances are not a common side effect of hyperactivity disorders in children. However, there are many factors that could contribute to child not sleeping, which include not having a fixed bedtime or having access to televisions, computers and cell phones in bedrooms.
Also, I recommend that you restrict very active physical activity before bedtime, which can hinder or disrupt sleep.
