Everyone recognizes the importance of a good night’s sleep. For children, it is doubly important as it is during sleep when their body makes the cells needed for growth and maturity.
Banner Children’s can help families who have concerns about their child’s sleep patterns and effectively diagnose children to provide a better night sleep for child and care giver.
One of the most common signs of sleep deprivation is a tendency to fall asleep at inappropriate times, such as during play time for toddlers or during class time for adolescents. Many children will have behavior problems such as impulsivity or over-activity and mood disturbances. Another sign is that your child requires a nap during the day as children most commonly do not require naps after the age of four.
Our experienced sleep professionals can help in diagnosing and treating sleep-related disorders, including sleep apnea, excessive sleepiness, movement disorders, insomnia and other sleep/wake schedule problems.
