Sleep in Childhood Neurological Disorders addresses the myriad sleep-wake issues associated with neurological disturbances from the newborn period through adolescence. The editors and contributing authors are internationally recognized authorities who cover everything from sleep and ADHD, headaches, restless leg syndrome, parasomnias, hypersomnias, autism, brain tumors, epilepsy, traumatic brain injury, and other primary disorders to sleep co-morbidities, assessment, testing, interventions, pharmacology and more.
The first book devoted to the growing field of pediatric neurosomnology, Sleep in Childhood Neurological Disorders is an invaluable text for clinicians looking for current information and practical guidance to successfully manage their pediatric sleep patients.
