The Sleep Medicine and Research Center evaluates children for a variety of sleep disturbances. In some cases, children snore or breathe noisily while sleeping. Our certified sleep specialists can help you determine if the sleep problem is medical or behavioral in nature.
In other cases, parents wish to change children's undesirable bedtime or sleep habits, including stalling, frequent nighttime awakenings and the inability to fall asleep alone. Your first step will be to meet with our pediatric sleep nurse, Nancy Birkenmeier, BSN, RN, who will gather your child's medical history and detailed sleep history. You will also discuss specific goals related to your child's sleep.
