Quality sleep is important to a child's health and well being. The pediatric sleep center team at Dayton Children’s is dedicated to helping children with sleep-related problems improve the quality of their sleep and their overall health.

The pediatric sleep center is one of a few centers in the country accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. The sleep clinic is supervised by a physician board certified in sleep medicine, employs a fully credentialed polysomnographic technologist, and has access to a wide range of pediatric subspecialists. Inpatient and outpatient sleep studies are scheduled Sunday through Friday, making every effort to accommodate working parents.
