Is there a connection between sleep apnea and ADHD in children? According to a 2016 study in the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine, it's unclear. More studies are needed to understand the connection between ADHD and sleep issues, including whether only certain subtypes of ADHD are affected.
The symptoms of each can overlap in many ways. This is why it's important to see a doctor and request a sleep study if you suspect your child might have ADHD or sleep apnea.
