Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a developmental disorder characterised by persistent inattention and/or hyperactivity that can interfere with a child’s social functioning and academic attainment and affects approximately 2-8% of children and adults worldwide.  It has been reported that approximately one in four children with sleep problems in infancy will later meet the diagnostic criteria for ADHD. Sleep disturbances are also commonly reported in children and adults with ADHD.

Dr Michelle Downes, from the UCD Babylab and the UCD Neuropsychology Lab at UCD School of Psychology, will discuss the latest research in the area of sleep and ADHD. She will explore some of the questions being asked by scientists and the neuropsychology research currently happening at the newly established UCD BabyLab.
