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.

Appointment cancellations

While keeping appointments is important for your child's treatment, we understand other obligations may arise. If you are unable to make your child's appointment, cancel the appointment as soon as possible. When you don't cancel appointments, you prevent other children from being seen and receiving important care and treatment. We appreciate your help and understanding.
