Sleeping child

My son has sensory issues. No doubt about it. But when he doesn’t get enough sleep, it becomes that much worse. When we was younger, we didn’t realize he was having sleep problems. Vman had enlarged adenoids that was causing him to wake up throughout the night. Ultimately, he wasn’t getting good sleep, which was making his fits that much worse by the end of the day.

When we talk about ADHD and Sensory Processing Disorder, sleep (not a cure by any means) does influence the reserves a child has to manage the sensory input from the day.
