Sleep disorders, such as problems falling asleep and sleep apnea, affect your child's ability to get the sleep needed for good growth, development and overall health. Sometimes, problems with sleeping contribute to learning, mood and behavior troubles during the daytime. Problems with sleep can also disrupt your entire family's life. We offer testing (sleep studies), treatment and consultation for sleep disorders that affect babies, children and young people up to age 21. Our program is accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine.
Seattle Children’s has the only Sleep Center in the region dedicated to caring for babies, children and teens. We perform all our sleep studies in a lab specially designed to accommodate children. Our facility is located in Bellevue, and is part of Seattle Children's at Overlake Medical Tower. We have designed the lab so that you or another adult family member has a place to stay with your child during the overnight sleep test.
In addition to doctors and nurses who specialize in caring for young people, our team includes registered polysomnographic technologists who monitor and interpret children's sleep studies.
