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 (AASM). The sleep clinic is supervised by a physician board-certified in sleep medicine. The physician works with a fully credentialed polysomnographic technologist and a wide range of pediatric subspecialists. Inpatient and outpatient sleep studies are scheduled Sunday through Friday, making every effort to accommodate working parents, at our two convenient AASM accredited sleep laboratories (Springboro and Dayton campuses).
