Forbes has an article on their website, “Sleepless Kids Are Troubled Kids,” about the causes and effects of poor sleep on children’s performance. The article discusses the wide range of sleep disorders that affect children – “That spans everything from kids who are waking during the night, to resisting bedtime, to sleepwalking, disordered breathing — the gamut,” as well as some of their effects – “One 2006 study in the journal Public Library of Science Medicine found that youngsters with sleep apnea scored lower on standard IQ tests compared with unaffected kids — an average of 85 points vs. 100, respectively.”
