About This Project
Increasing the amount of sleep children get, by advancing bedtime, improves cognitive functioning of typically developing children. In my dissertation research, I hope to extend these findings to children with ADHD, a neurobehavioral disorder linked to social and academic problems throughout development.
If sleep extension is associated with cognitive benefits in this population, sleep manipulations may be considered as a non-pharmacological means of ADHD symptoms during early childhood.
