Sleep and ADHD
The link between sleep problems and ADHD may be biological. The ADHD brain has trouble regulating neurotransmitters like serotonin, which helps regulate sleep cycles. Research also suggests that ADHD stimulant medication may be a factor in sleep difficulties.
Whatever the cause, the results are the same - a restless night and groggy morning. Even worse, a long-term lack of sleep affects our stress levels, frustration tolerance, ability to regulate emotions, focus, concentration and appetite.
Hear our guest speaker Dr Keith Johnson, Neuropsychiatrist talk about all things sleep such as: how it affects adults and kids, the latest research, strategies and tips for improving your sleep.
