Left untreated, kids with sleep disorders may develop serious – and even life-threatening – conditions. At Cook Children's, we specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of sleep disorders in kids. Our pediatric sleep specialists are devoted to performing procedures according to the highest medical standards using integrated sleep software for the diagnosis and management of pediatric sleep-related disturbances.
Our Sleep Center is proudly accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM).
Have you ever wondered why your brain races at night while lying in bed? Even when you feel exhausted, it can sometimes be a challenge to quiet an active mind. Some neurodevelopmental disorders can make this issue worse. Believe it or not, there are also subconscious visual, or auditory cues that can either assist or prevent a person from achieving sleep.
Sleep psychologists are experts in improving these problems- and you can consult with one here at Cook Children's Medical Center! These are individuals with a Ph.D. in psychology, who have then done extra training in the ﬁeld of behavioral sleep medicine. They can analyze a person's schedule, sleep environment, medical and developmental history and mindset at bedtime, and help to make a treatment plan that maximizes the duration and quality of sleep. They can help everyone from parents of young babies, to teenagers. Contact us if you think a sleep psychology visit could help a child in your family!
