OBJECTIVE:

Pediatric sleep disorders can be subdivided into four broad categories: Primary Sleep Disorders that include two subcategories, Dyssomnias and Parasomnias; Sleep Disorder Related to Another Mental Disorder; Sleep Disorder Due to a General Medical Condition; and Substance-Induced Sleep Disorder.
