What is a Pediatric Sleep Specialist?
A Pediatric Sleep Specialist has special advanced training, beyond neurology or pulmonary training, in disorders of sleep and wakefulness in youngsters through the age of adolescence.
Children are not “little adults”....
Sleep problems in children have been linked to:
- poor school performance
- weight problems
- asthma, and
- many other problems
And, sleep disorders can complicate common pediatric problems:
- Down Syndrome
- Spina bifida
- and many others
Our sleep physicians are certified by the American Board of Pediatrics/American Board of Psychiatry & Neurology -- gold standards achieved after passing a comprehensive examination covering all areas of health related to infants, children, and young adults.
If your physician suggests that your child see a sleep specialist, you can be assured that your child will receive the best possible care.
