Sleep-Wake Disorders: Treatment

Treatment may include psychotherapy, medication or both. A combination of psychotherapy techniques may prove most effective; talk therapy can a child understand why he or she may have difficulties involving sleep, and cognitive behavior therapy can help adjust certain habits, such as teeth grinding, associated with sleep-wake disorders. A range of pharmacological options are also available to help treat the wide variety of conditions found within sleep-wake disorders.
