Screening and evaluation of sleep disorders in children and adolescents



Screening and evaluation of sleep disorders in children and adolescents



Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Clinics of North America 18(4): 825-838



Most pediatric professionals do not use a systematic screening, identification, or referral process to detect serious sleep problems and disorders in children and adolescents. Therefore, only 2% to 3% of children with sleep disorders are identified and treated. This article presents a screening, referral, and diagnostic process that helps detect and correct sleep disorders that impact children's learning, behavioral and emotional functioning, and health.
