Problematic maturation may cause sleep problems. This may explain the fact that children with a disorder connected with maturation of the central nervous system, including the disorders within the autistic spectrum, frequently suffer from sleeping problems. From this point of view, just leaving these children to cry is poor advice; it is better to support the parents and help them in coping with the child at night. People with a disorder within the autistic spectrum have deviating maturation of the central nervous system, in particular in the formation of connections to and within the left hemisphere of the brain, which is important for language and for putting thoughts and feelings into words.
Disturbances in maturation may be innocent in character but may also have substantial consequences. Children with a disorder within the autistic spectrum often display more maturation problems. These relate both to the development of the two hemispheres of the brain and to the maturation of the nervous system and presumably also the maturation of the hormonal system, specifically the part geared to coping with stress. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, or DSM-IV (APA 1994), the most widely used international classification of mental disorders, relates various disorders to maturation of the central nervous system.
