Sample text

Children’s sleep patterns may be easily disturbed by environmental or other factors. By the same token, however, they may readily change back again compared with adults in whom the factors underlying the sleep problem may have become well established and complicated by secondary eVects. That being so, it is often appropriate to sound a particularly optimistic note about response to treatment, providing that the treatment is based on accurate diagnosis, and that appropriate measures are likely to be implemented by parents in a committed and systematic way.

Alternatively, parents may be distressed if they misperceive the child’s sleep problem as evidence of a serious underlying condition, as often happens with the more dramatic forms of sleepwalking or headbanging. The emotional climate within the family can be further aVected if parents disagree about the best way to deal with the child’s sleep problem or if the advice given is inconsistent or ineVective. The situation is also not helped if there are long delays before a correct diagnosis is made.

These Wndings come very largely from studies of adults, but there is no reason, in principle, why comparable eVects of chronic sleep deprivation should not occur in children and adolescents.
