Sleep problems are common in preschool-age children, as are ADHD symptoms. Children with ADHD often display difficulty falling asleep, sleep-disordered breathing, and nighttime waking. Sleep problems and ADHD are mutually exacerbating conditions that should be evaluated simultaneously and tracked over time and before, during, and after interventions for ADHD. Improving sleep can reduce ADHD symptoms; however, ADHD treatments can affect sleep in different ways.
