Attention: Exhausted adults with ADHD and worn out parents of children with ADHD who feel tired, helpless and discouraged. Don’t Give Up Yet!

Finally, a one-stop holistic blueprint to help yourself or your child with ADHD get great sleep even if you have already tried everything else.
Dear Adult with ADHD or Parent of a Child with ADHD,
Do you lie awake at night worrying that you or your child will never fall asleep? Are you afraid that you or your child won’t get enough sleep yet again and will be exhausted, cranky, and unproductive tomorrow?
Do you worry that you or your child’s ADHD symptoms will be worse than ever because you or your child can’t get enough sleep?
I’ve been where you are. I raised a child with ADHD who had a significant sleep problem. It felt like she could never fall asleep. Sometimes it was already getting light out when she finally did. And then she couldn’t get up in time for school. And when she did get up she was grumpy, irritable, and impatient and had even more trouble concentrating and sitting still than usual.
If you are like me you feel powerless, and you don’t know what to do next.
Do you find that you or your child are often too busy to go to bed? Do you have trouble getting into a regular nighttime routine? Do you stay up too late to get up in time for school or work? Do you get easily distracted and forget to get to bed on time? Do you suspect that some foods and drinks keep you or your child awake? Do you know what else interferes with sleep? Do you know how to set up you or your child’s bedroom to get the best sleep?
You are not alone!
Did you know that research confirms that ADHD can have a huge impact on an adult’s or a child’s sleep? Various studies have found that between 25% and 50% of children with ADHD have sleep problems as reviewed in Sleep 2009. Children with ADHD take longer to fall asleep, sleep less total time, have more daytime sleepiness and have differences in their sleep architecture than kids without ADHD.
A study reported in the 2009 Journal of Clinical Psychiatry found that adults with ADHD went to bed later than control subjects, were more likely to take over an hour to fall asleep, and were more likely to experience difficulty going to bed, going to sleep, sleeping restfully, or waking in the morning. They experienced daytime sleepiness more often and reported more sleep problems than controls. Between nineteen and thirty two percent of people with ADHD have at least moderate sleep problems. And taking stimulant medication can raise this to sixty one percent. Holy Moly! You are not alone!
I’m sure you already know how much poor sleep can impact ADHD symptoms. Some people with ADHD have stated that getting one bad night’s sleep makes their ADHD symptoms increase to ADHD symptoms ‘squared’!
If ADHD is impacting your sleep or the sleep of your child you are probably frustrated because you’ve already tried everything and don’t know where to turn next. You are tired, worn out. And the more you think about not being able to sleep, the more trouble you have falling asleep. And if your child with ADHD has trouble sleeping you certainly aren’t sleeping well either.
Have you tried it all?
If you have been dealing with a sleep problem I’m sure you have tried to find something that would help. I’m sure you found that many common sleep remedies just don’t work for you or your child.
When you’re dealing with ADHD, one size does NOT fit all. ADHD impacts sleep in unique ways and therefore you need unique solutions.
I bet these will sound very familiar to you…
- Trying to get to bed at a reasonable hour and realizing you got distracted by a project and now it’s very late
- Trying to get your child with ADHD to stay in bed and lie down long enough to fall asleep
- Trying sleeping medication and feeling hung over the next day
- Trying to get up in time for work or school and sleeping right through the alarm clock – late again
- Dragging yourself through the day exhausted and irritable
- Feeling fogged in and unable to concentrate or get anything done
- Getting a call from school saying your child fell asleep in class again
- Working with your child for hours to help them fall asleep and having their eyes pop open while they ask for some water
- Trying to find someone or something to help you or your child sleep
- Using caffeine during the day to treat your sleep deficit
What if I could help you with every single fear
and concern you have about sleep?
Would you believe me if I told you within a short time you could go to bed and rest easy, knowing that you or your child will…
- Be able to relax and go to sleep more easily
- Get to bed in time to feel rested the next day
- Get enough sleep every night

So who am I, and why should you listen to me?
My name is Debra Burdick, LCSW, BCN, and I’m the parent of a child with ADHD who had a significant sleep issue, so I’ve been where you are. Although I don’t have ADHD (yes, there are times when I think I do), I’ve become an expert on succeeding and thriving with ADHD as I have parented a child with it, was married for 20 years to a man with it, and have been in business situations with a partner who thrives with it.
As a psychotherapist and Neurofeedback practitioner, I’ve helped thousands of adults, children, and their families with ADHD since 1989 many with sleep issues. I’ve learned what works and what doesn’t work in the real world from personal experience, from my clients, and from the relevant research. I learned and perfected many techniques to improve sleep as I helped my daughter improve her ability to sleep. I pass this on to you in this book and CD set to give you the tools to help you and/ or your child live a happy and successful life.
I wish I had had this book and CDs when my daughter was young. I know the struggle with having a child who…
- Avoids going to bed
- Finds every excuse not to stay in bed
- Cannot lie still long enough to fall asleep
- Has such a busy mind that she can’t calm down and relax
- Takes stimulant meds which interfere with sleep
- Takes hours to fall asleep
- Cannot wake up in the morning after falling asleep so late
- Is grumpy and out of sorts from being sleep deprived
- Has ten times as much trouble concentrating and sitting still when tired
- Misses school because she is constantly sick due to sleep
I know the list above applies just as much to adults with ADHD. And adult sleep issues can also worsen:
- Chronic Fatigue
- Poor concentration
- Task completion
- Significant health issues
- Poor work performance
- Difficulty with relationships with family, friends, and at work
- Anxiety and depression
- Chronic worry about not being able to sleep
- Constantly feeling overwhelmed
- Sleep related auto and work related accidents
If any of this sounds like you or your child my book and companion CDs can help you today.
