Tackling insomnia may help children with autism spectrum disorder

I've already written about the link between childhood autism spectrum disorders and insomnia - normally from the perspective that children with autistic disorder, Asperger syndrome, Rett syndrome and other pervasive developmental disorders often have lower levels of melatonin (an important sleep hormone).

An astonishing 50-80% of children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) find it difficult to fall asleep or stay asleep.

A special supplement on ASD published in the journal Pediatrics found that treating the conditions associated with ASD (such as insomnia and ADHD symptoms) can help children with ASD feel better and can even improve their school performance and behavior.

When it comes to relieving insomnia, the supplement recommends behavioral therapy.

Unsurprising, since this treatment option is effective over the long term and doesn't rely on drugs.
