Abstract

Bedtime problems and night wakings in infants and young children are prevalent, persistent, and associated with a variety of impairments in youth and their families. Assessment strategies include clinical interview, sleep diaries, actigraphy, and subjective measures. A number of treatment approaches with varying degrees of empirical support are available, and several novel strategies have been evaluated in recent years. Appropriate sleep scheduling and a bedtime routine are important components of any treatment program.
