About the Authors
  • Sleep disturbances are commonplace problems that cause great distress to sufferers and their families. They are implicated in a variety of problems, from poor educational performance or disturbed behavior to accidents or other physical problems. Yet, there is no up-to-date, comprehensive, one-stop source of information for clinicians concerning sleep disorders in young people. Traditionally, research into sleep disorders has generally occurred within separate, unconnected medical disciplines, mainly involving adults. As sleep disturbances are associated with serious health problems, identifying and treating the problem early is essential for good long-term health and well-being. Gregory Stores addresses this need with a cross-disciplinary review of available clinical information and treatments, illustrated by actual cases. This book will be essential reading for all professionals involved in child healthcare from infancy to adolescence, and will also be invaluable to general readers looking for up-to-date information and references.

    • Practical, up-to-date, and comprehensive guide for clinicians and other health professionals
    • Illustrated by actual cases
    • Highlights implications for professional training and areas for future research

    Reviews & endorsements

    "This is a well-researched book...useful...I would recommend that this book should be available to departments as a work of reference, and that it should be regarded as essential reading for paediatricians and psychiatrists working with children with learning disabilities." European Child and Adolescent Psychiatry

    "This is a book to keep close and use often. It will add to the management of each child with a sleep problem. It is a sleep consultant in a book. I have had this guide on my desk for two months and used it regularly. There is more than accurate, thoughtful and clear information." Canadian Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Review

    "This book could well serve as a model of what a good basic clinical guide should be and I am sure it will be influential and have wide services for years to come." Infant and Child Development

    "The book is nicely laid out, clearly written and interspersed with anecdotes, which illustrate the difficulties and their management." Family Practice

    "A clearly written text" Journal of Pediatric Endocrinology and Metabolism
