According to Stevens Point Journal, children diagnosed with ADHD may actually be suffering from obstructive sleep apnea.

Dr. Stephen Sheldon, professor of pediatrics at Northwestern University School of Medicine and director of the Sleep Medicine Center says, “There are a number of sleep disorders that if looked at, an attention deficit problem can be identified. If you take a large number of children that have attention deficit and you evaluate them for sleep-disordered breathing, about a fifth to a quarter of those youngsters will have pediatric obstructive sleep apnea.”
