Parents of ADHD Children
Hello! My son has been newly diagnosed with ADHD. We have been structuring his bedtime routine more but this child will still not sleep! We have a set bedtime, have tried a reward chart and still nothing works. He refuses to sleep in his bedroom, refuses to sleep on the couch, just plain refuses to sleep at all! My husband and I have tried laying with him, reading to him, we keep the same routine night after night but nothing is helping. I’ve discussed this with his dr numerous times but have got no good feedback on what to do. Anybody have any suggestions? I have even tried ADHD support groups but they do not offer any where I live.
