Review Quotes
"A clearly written text" Journal of Pediatric Endocrinology and Metabolism
' ... an excellent guide to these childhood and adolescent disorders ... 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
'The book is nicely laid out, clearly written and interspersed with anecdotes, which illustrate the difficulties and their management ...

"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 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 text is a thorough exploration of children's sleep difficulties ... It is readable, accessible and very informative ... it is a very valuable textbook both for newcomers and for clinicians wishing to refresh their knowledge. It presents a very compelling argument for the need to re-visit this as an important field of work ... assessment and treatment are well covered and the content is illustrated with case examples and plenty of references.' The Journal of Critical Psychology, Counselling and Psychotherapy

Long Description
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.
Main Description
Sleep disturbance is commonplace and causes much personal distress to sufferers and their families. It is implicated in a variety of problems, from poor educational performance or disturbed behaviour to accidents or physical dysfunction. Traditionally, research into sleep disorders has generally been undertaken within separate, unconnected medical disciplines and has mainly involved adults. As sleep disturbance is closely associated with serious problems, identifying and treating sleep disorders early is essential for good long-term health and well-being. Yet there is no up-to-date, comprehensive, one-stop source of information for clinicians concerning sleep disorders in young people. Gregory Stores addresses this need with a cross-disciplinary account of available clinical information and treatments, illustrated by actual cases of sleep problems in the young. 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-the-minute information and references.
