The prevalence of sleep disorders in children is high; some surveys suggest that roughly 12% of children will report nightly sleep problems and 76% occasional sleep issues. Certain populations are at a much higher risk, such as children with Down syndrome, neuromuscular disease, craniofacial abnormalities, intracranial tumors, epilepsy, and developmental delay.
