Sleep Disorders in Children: Collaboration for School-Based Intervention
Everhart, D. Erik
Journal of Educational & Psychological Consultation, v21 n2 p133-148 2011
The effects of sleep disturbance on children are wide ranging and include alterations in behavior, mood, cognition, and academic performance. Screening and intervention for pediatric sleep disorders within the schools are not widely implemented, and the concept of integrating school personnel into the multidisciplinary sleep team has yet to be realized. This article describes some of the major sleep disorders, the effects on overall function, and the results of outcome studies that have used school-based intervention. The article concludes with recommendations for incorporation of school personnel, including teachers and school psychologists, into the multidisciplinary sleep team, as these individuals are in a unique position to provide observations and assessment information concerning initial screening and intervention outcomes. (Contains 2 tables.)
