Many people do not know that pediatric sleep disorders are common in infants, children, and adolescents. If your child is not getting enough high-quality sleep, trust the professionals at Allergy & Asthma Sleep Center of Excellence to help diagnose and treat their pediatric sleep disorders to help them stay healthy and avoid other interrelated issues, including academic, behavioral, and developmental difficulties. Lack of sleep in children can even impact family and social relationships, so if you notice your child has trouble falling or staying asleep, it is important to seek professional help as soon as possible.
Many of the same sleep disorders that affect adults can wreak havoc for children and adolescents. These disorders include sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome, insomnia, snoring, arousal disorders, parasomnias, and upper airway resistance syndrome. Sleep disorders can sometimes present differently in children than in adults, so it is important to find a specialist with experience in pediatric sleep problems who can fully understand the implication of sleep disorders on a child’s physical and mental development.
For children, behavior modification plans and being clear about expectations can be helpful in addressing some sleep issues. This may include maintaining a stricter schedule for waking up and positive reinforcement to help your child understand their new schedule. For children with sleep apnea, special intervention may be necessary and medication or herbal supplements may help with other disorders. Whatever your child’s struggles with sleep entail, the dedicated and professional doctors at Allergy & Asthma Sleep Center of Excellence can help you understand the best way to help your child get the rest they need so they be happy and ready to learn and grow.
When you bring your child to Allergy & Asthma Sleep Center of Excellence, we will take a full medical history and also perform a complete physical exam as part of the diagnostic process. We will also ask questions about your child’s social life and potential stressors, performance in school, the environment that your child sleeps in, and other information about home, school, and even your own sleep quality and patterns. Depending on the situation, further testing including blood work may be required. Once we have a complete picture of your child’s life and sleep schedule, we will work with your family to make informed treatment decisions that can help your child get the high-quality rest they need and deserve.
While adults need an appropriate amount of sleep as well, it can be especially difficult for young children to cope when they are not getting enough rest. If your child is displaying abnormal irritability or difficulty at school, ensuring they are getting enough sleep may be part of the answer. That is why it is so important to make sure your child sees the best sleep doctors available at Allergy & Asthma Sleep Center of Excellence as soon as you notice they are having trouble.
