Well, I read in my child psych that contrary to popular belief nightmares, night terrors and even sleepwalking are normal for this age and are not indicative of trauma. How can your brainwave activity while sleeping be behavioral?
It's not as though anyone has control over that. I think you should see a different psych. doctor they will probably tell you it's normal.
Does her dad really have a problem consenting to a medical evaluation that might make her life more comfortable?
