Sleep Disturbances Could Affect Performances in School

Insufficient sleep at night could have an adverse effect on your performances in school, according to a study that shows// how important the evening slumber is for students.

Dr. James F. Pagel of the University Of Colorado School Of Medicine and other researchers examined the results of 238 school district-approved questionnaires, filled out by students attending middle school or high school, which included a high frequency of sleep complaints, according the health portal Medical News Today.

The finding of the study published in the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine (JCSM) finds that adolescents who experience sleep disturbances were more likely to receive bad grades in school.

According to the surveys, students with lower grade point averages (GPAs) were more likely to have restless, aching legs when trying to fall asleep, difficulty concentrating during the day, snoring every night, a hard time waking up in the morning, sleepiness during the day, and falling asleep in class.

"While a series of previously-conducted studies all found that adolescents reporting inadequate sleep, irregular sleep patterns, and/or poor sleep quality do not perform as well in school as students without sleep complaints, this study provides additional evidence indicating that sleep disturbances occur at high frequencies in adolescents and significantly affect daytime performance, as measured by GPA," said Pagel.

Both restless legs and difficulty concentrating during the day are symptoms associated with the diagnosis of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), a diagnosis that can be associated with poor school performance.

It is important for parents to discuss their teens' sleep-related problem with a primary care physician, and to have their teen screened for ADHD if necessary, added Pagel.

The researchers recommend children get a full night's sleep on a regular basis. Do not stay up all hou
