Sleep Disorders in Children

About Your Child's Care and Condition

Determining if your child has a sleep problem begins with a visit to our board-certified sleep specialists. We treat many common sleep disorders, as well as rare sleep problems, in children. Obstructive sleep apnea, central sleep apnea, insomnia and excessive daytime sleepiness are a few of the most common disorders we diagnose and treat. We start with an office visit to better understand the type of sleep problem and then recommend the best plan to diagnose and treat your child.

Your pediatric pulmonologist or sleep medicine doctor may order a sleep study, which is performed by one of our pediatric sleep disorder technicians at our nationally accredited pediatric sleep disorders center. You’ll stay overnight in a child-friendly sleep lab that records over 16 different aspects of sleeping and breathing to help sort out normal sleep from a medical disorder. Once our sleep doctor reviews the sleep study, recommendations will be shared with the family, as well as the primary care physician and the medical team.
