Children's Sleep Clinic

Sleep is extremely important for children of all ages. Children who get an adequate amount of sleep have improved attention, behavior, learning, memory, and overall mental and physical health. It is important for healing and repairing functions of our body. Sleep is considered to be as important as food and exercise. If a child is struggling with sleep issues, they are at risk for behavioral and medical issues like poor school performance, focus and attention, mood swings, obesity or delayed growth.

Our Sleep Disorders Program at Children’s Sleep Clinic provides high standards of care to treat sleep disorders in children. We strive for an accurate diagnosis and the best treatment possible to help resolve their sleep issues and provide a healthy body and mind.
