Abstract

Comparative analysis of parent-reported sleep problems in clinical and typical children shows that (1) children with anxiety or depression sleep more than children with autism, ADHD-combined type, ADHD-inattentive type, acquired brain injury, and typical development; (2) children with autism have more sleep problems than children in the other diagnostic groups; (3) children with ADHD-inattentive type have the fewest sleep problems but have more daytime sleepiness than typical controls; (4) children with ADHD-combined type have more sleep problems than controls; (5) controls and children with ADHD-combined type have the least daytime sleepiness, and (6) children with brain injury have sleep problems scores in the midrange compared with all other groups.
