Treatment for children's sleep disorders varies with the type of disorder. Many disorders respond best to behavioral or environmental changes, while some respond well to medical treatment. Modifying behaviors or altering sleep schedules can be very effective in managing a number of common sleep disorders. Those that are caused by a physiological condition may be improved by treating the primary disorder or may be treated in conjunction with a chronic condition.
