The clinical manifestations, evaluation methods, and interventions for children with insomnia are distinct from adults. As is the case with adults, there is solid empirical evidence supporting a number of behavioral interventions for insomnia in children 5 years and younger. The literature provides little guidance, however, on the treatment of insomnia in school-age children and adolescents. The goal of this article is to describe the varied presentations of pediatric insomnia across developmental phases, and offer a framework for evaluation and individualized treatment.
