Could Kids with ADD/ADHD just need more Sleep?

There is a high incidence of both children and adults with sleep disorder problems who also have ADD/ADHD.

In a study by Ronald Chervin, a neurologist at the University of Michigan, he found that 30% of boys younger than 8 years of age that snored were identified with hyperactivity, while only 9% of non-snorers were found to be hyperactive.

The study is not suggesting that sleep disorders cause ADHD. The study rather reminds us that children can express daytime sleepiness as hyperactivity as a way to stay awake and adults can express daytime sleepiness as irritability or loopyness.

WHY ARE WE DIFFERENT?

Most medical doctors who treat ADD/ADHD do so as part of a larger practice. ADHD Specialists focuses primarily on only treating ADD and related conditions. This intense focus allows us to continually sharpen our clinical skills, attend specialized training, utilize the latest therapies, and build our process to meet the specific needs of our clients.

Often medical, testing and counseling services are all separately owned and located practices. It just does not make sense to have to travel from one location to another to treat the same condition. Besides the issue of time and travel, how cohesive and effective is care being delivered in multiple locations by multiple, unrelated providers who don’t have time to talk to each other?
