Abstract

Sleep disturbance, common among children with ADHD, can contribute to cognitive and behavioral dysfunction. It is therefore challenging to determine whether neurobehavioral dysfunction should be attributed to ADHD symptoms, sleep disturbance, or both. The present study examined parent-reported sleep problems (Childrens Sleep Habits Questionnaire) and their relationship to neuropsychological function in 64 children, aged 4-7 years, with and without ADHD. Compared to typically developing controls, children with ADHD were reported by parents to have significantly greater sleep disturbance-including sleep onset delay, sleep anxiety, night awakenings, and daytime sleepiness-(all p ≤.01), and significantly poorer performance on tasks of attention, executive control, processing speed, and working memory (all p
