Sleep-disordered breathing is a general term for breathing difficulties during sleep. It’s a common condition that can easily go undetected if unaware of symptoms, and causes. The most obvious symptom of course is loud snoring, and in turn this can cause children to be irritable, sleepy throughout the day, or having difficulty concentrating. While a common physical cause for sleep-disordered breathing is enlarged tonsils and adenoids, there are a number of other causes which can affect your child’s behavior, learning, growth, and social aspects of life.
