Abstract: Sleep health affects daily functioning to a significant degree and yet it is typically an afterthought, if that, in the multidisciplinary assessment and treatment of children. This, despite a large majority of parents reporting concerns over their children's sleep, particularly those with developmental disabilities. This talk offers an overview of the neurophysiology of sleep and the assessment and evidence-based treatment of pediatric sleep problems. A Q&A will be offered as well.
