Children with ADHD are at increased risk for sleep problems, particularly insomnia. We will provide information about the nature of this relationship and what is known about the treatment of insomnia in children with ADHD. We will also describe how the Better Nights, Better Days intervention has been modified to help children with ADHD sleep better.
