ADHD AND SLEEP, with Roberto Olivardia
Featured Speaker: Roberto Olivardia, Ph.D., Clinical Psychologist and Clinical Instructor of Psychology at Harvard Medical School, ADHD author, speaker and expert.
Sleep problems and disorders are common for kids and adults with ADHD. Dr. Olivardia will discuss the various sleep issues ADHD individuals face and reasons why having ADHD places one at a higher risk for sleep problems. ADHD-friendly strategies and interventions for achieving and maintaining healthy sleep habits will be reviewed, as well as the impact ADHD medication can have on sleep. While we focus on ADHD in particular, so many of the sleep challenges that we discuss will likely be familiar to almost all parents, as it's the rare parent who manages to raise a child without experiencing sleep issues of some sort, or so it seems. Dr. Olivardia is not only an ADHD expert professionally but also has lived experience having ADHD himself and being the parent of children with ADHD and learning differences. He will share personal anecdotes of his own experience with various sleep disorders and issues and ADHD. We hope this conversation leads to healthier sleep habits for you and your families.
