Abstract Sleep problems in children and young people are common and varied. They are also often poorly understood and result in significant disruption to the lives of those affected, including to the lives of parents and family members. However, the majority of these problems can be treated using well-evidenced cognitive behavioural approaches. This is particularly important as the effective treatment of sleep problems not only improves sleep itself but also reduces the risk of other mental health problems and improves the ability of the child or young person and their family to function optimally during the day.
