Services We Offer

Sleep evaluations

At Children's, we offer two kinds of sleep evaluations:

  • Daytime sleep consultation: The first step to evaluating and managing a sleep disorder may be a daytime consultation with a sleep disorder physician in his or her office.
  • Overnight sleep study: Your doctor may determine that your child should undergo an overnight sleep study (polysomnogram) at one of our sleep labs.

Good sleep habits

Your child should:

  • Have a 20- to 30-minute relaxing bedtime routine that is the same every night; this can include reading a book or talking about his day.
  • Go to bed at night and get up in the morning at the same time every day.
  • Have a comfortable, quiet and dark bedroom; he will sleep better in a room that is cool.
  • Get exercise every day.

Your child should not:

  • Have caffeine at least three to four hours before bedtime.
  • Have a TV in his bedroom; he can easily develop the bad habit of “needing” the TV to fall asleep.
  • Play video games or use the computer before bedtime.
  • Go to bed hungry; a light snack before bed is OK.
  • Use the bedroom for time-out or other punishment. You want your child to think of his bedroom as a good place, not a bad one.

Our Unique Approach

At Children's, we combine the latest technology and research with a caring, child-friendly approach, making us a top choice for children and teens with sleep disorders.
