Do You Have Sleep Apnea?
Take the Test for Children
Please select the appropriate age group below to assess your child’s sleeping patterns. If you or your child answer yes to more than two of the questions, they should be evaluated by a trained professional to determine if they have a sleep breathing disorder.
The nearest TMJ & Sleep Therapy will reach out and send you additional information. They can discuss options and answer any questions you may have.
BEARS SLEEP SCREENING ALGORITHM
The “BEARS” instrument is divided into five major sleep domains, providing a comprehensive screen for the major sleep disorders affecting children in the 2- to 18-year old range. Each sleep domain has a set of age-appropriate “trigger questions” for use in the clinical interview. The BEARS is a user-friendly pediatric sleep screening tool which significantly increases the amount of sleep information recorded as well as the likelihood of identifying sleep problems in children.
B = bedtime problems
E = excessive daytime sleepiness
A = awakenings during the night
R = regularity and duration of sleep
S = snoring
