Our expert says:
You've just given a near-perfect description of normal sleepwalking in a child, and of a sensible parent handling it very well indeed. Sleepwalking can be seen as a variety of disturbed sleep, but unless you live on the top of a cliff, is usually harmless, a phase, and usually disappears on its own ; and it doesn't seem to involve any significan loss of the benefits of sleep. I don't see it as associated with ADD/ADHD, which I am concerned, gets too frequently diagnosed and drug-treated, when his is not usually needed. If the diagnosis made is positive for this, it'd be worth considering a second opinion from a shrink not dedicated to working with ADHD.
