It’s SLEEP. Gregory writes, “78% of the children in our sample who had ADHD as a child, no longer had the disorder when they were 18. Their ADHD had resolved over time. What’s more, the sleep quality of those participants who no longer had ADHD was no worse than those who have never had it.” In layman’s terms, ADHD can resolve itself and so can the sleep problems associated with ADHD.

You may argue that the ADHD is causing the poor sleep, but Gregory isn’t so sure about that. She writes, “equally, poor sleep and exhaustion in children may be expressed by restlessness, and other symptoms typical of ADHD.” In other words, children without ADHD that get a poor nights sleep often act like they have ADHD the next day. Interesting.
