    ADHD and Sleep Problems: New Study on Children


    Reading these posts brought back many memories of when my son, with ADHD, was younger.

    This is obviously a problem that many parents of children with ADHD face each day. Because of this, I searched around the Sleep Disorder site to try to find some information on insomnia that may help:

    I hope some of this information helps and allows you and your family to get a good night's rest.
