Sleep disturbances are commonplace problems that cause great distress to sufferers and their families. They are implicated in a variety of problems, from poor educational performance or disturbed behavior to accidents or other physical problems. Yet, there is no up-to-date, comprehensive, one-stop source of information for clinicians concerning sleep disorders in young people. Traditionally, research into sleep disorders has generally occurred within separate, unconnected medical disciplines, mainly involving adults. As sleep disturbances are associated with serious health problems, identifying and treating the problem early is essential for good long-term health and well-being. Gregory Stores addresses this need with a cross-disciplinary review of available clinical information and treatments, illustrated by actual cases. This book will be essential reading for all professionals involved in child healthcare from infancy to adolescence, and will also be invaluable to general readers looking for up-to-date information and references.
