Abstract

Research suggests that in clinical samples, almost 1/2 of children with obstructive sleep apnea have a behavioral sleep problem, and of those, most do not receive behavioral recommendations. This study extends previous research via a longitudinal investigation of the presence and comorbidity of symptoms of sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) and behavioral sleep problems in a non-clinical sample. Findings were that the prevalence of symptoms of SDB and behavioral sleep problems at each of the 4 time points was nearly identical, with a peak age of 30 months, and that 25% to 40% of children with symptoms of SDB had behavioral sleep problems. Results suggest that an interdisciplinary approach, including behavioral expertise, is warranted even if the referral concern is solely SDB.
