A Calgary Pediatric Sleep Clinic That Puts Children First

Does your child have a sleep disorder?

As a parent, you know what can happen when you or your child doesn’t get enough sleep. It can affect everyone’s mood, behaviour, memory, and physical and mental well-being.

Often sleep disorders are overlooked, or misdiagnosed. There are over 20 sleep disorders that can affect children. Signs can range from getting too much sleep, inadequate sleep, restless sleep, an inability to focus… the list goes on. It is important to talk to a doctor and get to a Calgary pediatric sleep clinic in order to have a sleep test done.

Having a child with a sleep problem is a family affair.

The BEARS necessities

Another way to tell if you child is getting the required amount of sleep is by answering the BEARS questionnaire. Why “BEARS”? For one, bears are renowned for their sleeping abilities during hibernation. And two, it is a helpful acronym for the following:

B: Bedtime
E: Excessive daytime sleepiness
A: Awakening during the night
R: Regularity (and duration) of sleep
S: Snoring
