Does your child struggle to fall asleep at night? Children identified with dyslexia often find it hard to sleep at night. Their brains are processing the day and many times worrying about tomorrow. If your child also has ADHD, their brain is busy processing and can often struggle with sleep. Dr. Olivardia is going to share why sleep is important and what we can do as parents to help our children get to sleep.
Dr. Roberto Olivardia is a Clinical Psychologist and Clinical Instructor in Psychology in the Department of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School.
