Sleep disorders in children can affect behaviour, mood, memory, decreased concentration, slow reactions and difficulty in learning . Disorders are classified into two categories. They are dyssomnias and parasomnias including difficulties in sleep onset, improper sleep hygiene, snoring, sleep apnea, etc.
Sleep disorders in children and adolescents are common; even infants may have sleep disorders. Studies have shown that poor sleep quality and/or quantity in children are associated with a host of problems, including academic, behavioral, developmental and social difficulties, weight abnormalities, and other health problems. Not only do pediatric sleep problems affect child health, but they can impact family dynamics and parental or sibling sleep
