A brief parent-based intervention to improve sleep for children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder

Sleep problems are very common in children with ADHD, with a prevalence rate as high as 73%, and often pose significant challenges and stress to the families. Sleep problems in ADHD children are strongly associated with the exacerbation of daytime symptoms, impaired physical health, and poor parental mental health. Behavioural interventions, despite limited access and availability locally, have been suggested as the first-line treatment for ADHD children experiencing sleep problems and have been shown to be highly effective.

This project was funded by the Health and Medical Research Fund (Health Care and Promotion Scheme) to develop a locally adapted, brief parent-based sleep intervention for ADHD children with sleep problems. This project aimed to support and provide parents with the necessary knowledge and skills in dealing with specific sleep problems encountered by children with ADHD through a brief parent-based intervention.
