Abstract

Sleep problems are common among children and adolescents, with up to 50% of children experiencing sleep difficulties and as many as 4% receiving a formal sleep disorder diagnosis. Early identification of sleep problems may prevent negative consequences, such as daytime sleepiness, misdiagnosis, learning difficulties, or poor academic performance. This article provides an overview of common sleep disorders in children and adolescents, including common presenting symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment.
