Welcome to Pediatric Sleep Specialists

Sleep problems are very common in children. Up to 50% of infants and young children experience sleep difficulties, and 80% of teenagers do not get enough sleep. Sleep problems are even more common in children with medical, developmental or mental health concerns.

Pediatric Sleep Specialists is an independent organization and the only comprehensive pediatric sleep disorders center in the region. The center includes a sleep clinic and sleep lab. We diagnose and treat sleep disorders in infants, children and teenagers. In addition to snoring and breathing disorders which affect sleep, we evaluate patients for all of the seven major classes of sleep disorders which can affect their ability to fall asleep, stay asleep or function while awake.

Not every child needs a sleep study, lab work, medication or surgery. Some families respond well to guidance on how to approach sleep tailored to the family’s unique needs, so that their child can be alert, happy, ready to play and learn!
