Pediatric Sleep Medicine
For infants, young children and adolescents, sleep disorders are prevalent and affect approximately 30 percent of this age population. Poor or inadequate sleep can lead to mood swings, behavioral issues (such as hyperactivity or depression) and cognitive problems that may impact children’s learning abilities at school. If you have a child who has difficulty falling and staying asleep, contact us to find out if he/she may be suffering from a sleep disorder. We take the time to carefully diagnose your child’s condition, provide comprehensive and individualized treatment, and work closely with you on any necessary follow-up care. If your child has been diagnosed with ADHD/ADD, depression or a learning disorder, please consider whether their sleep is contributing to their outward clinical issues. All children with neuromuscular disorders or chromosomal abnormalities (Trisomy 21 etc.) should also be evaluated for sleep disorders.
