Childhood sleeping habits could result in ADHD misdiagnosis

Posted on October 10th, 2011 No Comments

A new study suggests that children who do not have a fixed bedtime or those who share a bed with a parent or sibling could have adverse effects their behavior. Many of these adverse effects have the strong potential to lead to a misdiagnosis of ADHD.

Compared to children who do have a fixed bed time, children who do not are more likely to throw tantrums, have aggressive behavior towards parents, have low self-confidence, get in trouble at school, and be diagnosed with behavior or learning problems.

While the researchers acknowledge that many of these characteristics are typical of children who suffer from ADHD, they state that these kinds of behaviors are not enough for a diagnosis. They warn, however, that many children have been wrongly diagnosed with ADHD because they display the such actions.

If you or someone you love has been misdiagnosed as the result of a physician failing to recognize the underlying cause of certain symptoms, contact the Louisville wrong diagnosis lawyers of Sampson Law Firm at 502-584-5050.
