Snoring in children is a sign that their airway is partially obstructed during sleep.  This can prevent normal sleep, cause serious fatigue during the day, impair growth and lead to a lower quality of life.  Many studies have been performed indicating a significant correlation between sleep disorders in children and behavioral issues.  Children who do not sleep well, may complain of morning headaches, be irritable, have difficulty concentrating, exhibit hyperactivity or act impulsively.  Many classic symptoms of ADHD are often exhibited in children with sleep disorders.  The good news is that there is treatment which can improve your child’s quality of life.  Take the survey under Sleep Disorders in Children and you will get a telephone consultation by Dr. Perkins.
