About the Sleep Center

The Sleep Center at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia is an interdisciplinary sleep center dedicated exclusively to the management of sleep problems in children.

We diagnose and care for children with any type of sleep issue, including:

  • Sleep-disordered breathing (obstructive sleep apnea, apnea of infancy and central hypoventilation disorders)
  • Behavioral problems (including bedtime struggles and night wakings)
  • Insomnia
  • Parasomnias (including sleep walking and sleep terrors)
  • Narcolepsy
  • Circadian rhythm disorders (such as delayed sleep phase syndrome)
  • Movement disorders (periodic limb movement disorder, restless legs syndrome, head banging)

If your child is dealing with a sleep issue, he will receive coordinated care from a team of pediatric sleep specialists, including sleep medicine physicians, pulmonologists, neurologists, psychologists, respiratory therapists and more.

Your child's team of providers will work together to come up with an individualized treatment plan to meet his or her needs. This may include recommendations about supplemental oxygen, noninvasive ventilatory support in the form of CPAP or BiPAP, and mechanical assisted ventilation during sleep. We will work closely with your family to provide educational resources and support to help manage your child’s sleep problems.

Our services and locations

CHOP's Sleep Center provides full sleep services at three Sleep Clinic locations, including CHOP's Main Campus as well as Specialty Care Network locations in King of Prussia and Virtua.

At each Sleep Clinic location, a team of specialists will work together to assess your child’s sleep issues and determine if she should come in for a sleep study. Each location houses a Sleep Laboratory, which is a state of the art facility for overnight sleep studies. Our three locations have a total of 14 beds for these studies.
