Clinic at the Royal Children's Hospital

Sleep disorders are common in infants, children and adolescents. The diagnosis and treatment of these disorders needs to be individualised. We recognise that the management of sleep can be important in a range of other behavioural and medical disorders including attention deficit disorder and autism. We can help improve sleep problems in children with these issues with management plans that include both behavioural interventions and medications when necessary.

The following practitioners at CPMG can be of service in evaluating and managing sleep disorders in infants, children and adolescents:
