ADHD is a 24-hour disorder. Nighttime difficulties associated with ADHD include delayed circadian rhythm (going to sleep too late) and night to night variability in sleep patterns. Difficulties with sleep further exacerbate problems with attention and impulse control. ADHD is a disorder of self-regulation that also makes it more difficult to entrain a regular sleep rhythm. This webinar will review how families and individuals with ADHD can improve this vicious cycle and in obtaining a good night's sleep improve their well-being during the day as well.
