Obesity, Sleep Apnea, & Poor School Performance in Children
Did you know that 30% of school children are first misdiagnosed with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) when the true cause of the child's behavioral problem was later proven to be a sleep disorder? Many parents don't even know that children can suffer from sleep disorders, and many physicians neglect to test for them.
The Link between sleep disorders in children and poor school performance:
If your child's grades or behavior in school have been declining, contact the Sleep & Weight Loss Institute to arrange for a consultation. A pediatric sleep specialist will sit with you and your child to discuss and assess your child's symptoms and condition. A sleep study may be all that stands between your child's good night sleep and improved academic performance!
