ADHD and Sleep Deprivation

"Diagnosing the Wrong Deficit"

This article is a good reminder about how important sleep is for our children. An interesting connection is made between A.D.H.D. and sleep deprivation. We often see how a sleep deprived child appears hyperactive and unfocused, two similar symptoms found in A.D.H.D. These same symptoms can appear in adults suffering from sleep disorders. So just as we pay attention to how much sleep our children are getting make sure you are doing the same to take care of yourself.
