Event description

Description

Teenagers are at risk of experiencing multiple sleep difficulties like the inability to fall asleep or wake up in the morning. While this condition is often considered to be insomnia, it is more accurately described as delayed sleep phase syndrome—or night owl syndrome—a sleep condition frequent in adolescents and young adults. It is caused by a misalignment of your child’s internal clock and worsened by social and environmental factors such as improper light and screen exposure. Argelinda Baroni, MD, will discuss the symptoms and treatment of delayed sleep phase disorder, which involve proper sleep hygiene and light exposure, and possibly melatonin.
