Treating Sleep Disorders in Children

When your child has a sleep disorder, it keeps the entire family awake. It's easy to tell your child isn't sleeping well. What's not so easy is determining whether there is a medical reason at the root of poor sleeping patterns.

Pediatric Sleep Center

The Children's Hospital at TriStar Centennial offers a comprehensive approach to the diagnosis and treatment of pediatric sleep disorders. The Sleep Disorders Center, located on the campus of TriStar Centennial Medical Center, is fully accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) and has been providing quality sleep care for more than 30 years. Our team of board-certified sleep specialists and registered technologists and therapists are pediatric-trained and experienced in meeting the unique needs of children.

Diagnosing Childhood Sleep Disorders

According to the National Sleep Foundation's Sleep in America poll, two out of every three kids under the age of 10 have some type of sleeping problem. Whether your baby can't sleep, your child has insomnia, or your child has night terrors, sleeping problems may be the root of other troubles—behavior at home, socializing with friends, even focus and attention at school.
