Specialized in Pediatrics, Pediatric Pulmonology, and Sleep Medicine, and as a Fellow of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine; I am determined to make sure your child’s needs are known and well taken care of. Our pediatric sleep team is skilled in the evaluation and management of sleep, pulmonary and allergic disorders all through the childhood , especially with behavioral and physiological sleep disorders in conditions such as autism, ADD and ADHD as well as allergic asthma and reactive airway disease. Parents should be aware to the fact that 83% of autistic children have sleep disorder such as parasomnia, which could be obscured for years. not treating this condition will affect outcome negatively. Conversely, addressing risk factors as such, proved to improve behavior and quality of life of the children and ultimately their families.
