Children, adolescents and young adults can have sleep problems just like adults. In order to help you evaluate whether or not a young person has a sleeping problem or disorder, you should consider the following warning signs:
Sleep problems and disorders in children and young people can often be mis-diagnosed as behavioral issues. If you have a child that is constantly complaining about sleep related problems, make sure that you take him or her to see their pediatrician for a thorough medical examination.
In children who have been diagnosed with sleep apnea or a sleep disorder there are many different treatment options.
Contact Hawkeye Sleep Center for a meeting to evaluate the extent of our child's sleeping issues or concerns.
