It is not unusual for children to occasionally have trouble sleeping, but in many cases, children have more frequent or longer lasting sleep problems that may require evaluation by a sleep specialist. The Sleep Center at CHOP uses a unique model of pairing a physician with a psychologist to diagnose and treat children with any type of sleep problem or sleep disorder whenever possible. Our Sleep Center includes a Sleep Clinic and several Sleep Laboratories, state-of-the-art facilities for overnight sleep studies.
