Individuals with mental health and neurodevelopmental conditions often present with restless movement patterns and facial mimic characteristics, including hyper-/hypo-arousability hyper-kinesia, and hypermotor-restlessness (H-behaviours).  H-behaviours cause disruptive day and night-time behaviours, and various movement patterns have been described in children with ADHD, restless legs syndrome, tics and Tourette syndrome.


This workshop is funded by the Michael Smith Foundation and supported by BC Children’s Hospital Research Institute, Canada FASD Research Network, Kids’ Brain Health Network, and Children’s Sleep Network.
