Sleep Deprivation In Kids Mimic The Symptom Of Adhd

“Short sleep or disrupted sleep makes kids look like they have ADHD,” agrees pediatric sleep physician Craig Canapari, associate professor of pediatrics at Yale University and director of Yale’s Pediatric Sleep Center.⁠


“He suggests that a “worthwhile first step” for parents who suspect this in a sleep-deprived child would be to try to resolve the sleep issues before consulting a pediatrician.”⁠

Isn’t it worrying? Sad but true, adults are used to sleep deprivation, unfortunately more and more kids are experiencing it now and at many times, it is not treated. Parents sometimes asked if the child might be misdiagnosed with ADHD but what causing this could be just purely sleep deprivation in the child.⁠
