Sleep disturbances in children and teenagers are fairly prevalent, with symptoms ranging from trouble falling asleep or staying asleep to nightmares and sleep walking. Sleep disturbances in newborns and younger children are particularly tough for families since younger children have a harder time expressing their displeasure with their inability to sleep.Children with sleep problems usually display hyperactivity and restlessness symptoms that are similar to those seen in children with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), and are commonly misdiagnosed as such.
Poor sleep quality and quantity in children can lead to a variety of issues, including cognitive, social, behavioural, and developmental difficulties and delays, significantly impacting the kid and the overall family dynamics if left untreated.
The sleep specialists at Experiancare have more than 20 years of experience treating children and adolescents with sleep disturbances. In the treatment of sleep disorders in children, our board-certified paediatric sleep experts use a variety of therapy options, including behaviour modification, planned awakenings, positive reinforcements, and other non-invasive treatments.
"True silence is the rest of the mind, and is to the spirit what sleep is
to the body, nourishment and refreshment."
