Tests for Children

We utilize the same tests used to diagnose and rule out sleep disorders in adults for children. However, because children are more likely to displace sensors during the night, we prefer to use attended studies rather than home monitoring.

We recommend that a parent accompanies a child who spends the night at the Sleep Clinic. The parent sleeps in the same room to make the child more comfortable. For more specific details, visit the What to Expect From Your Child’s Sleep Study section.
