Sleep Clinic - Edition 11 - 2020

Research has found that sleep problems affect up to 40% of Australian children during the primary school years. Sleep problems during the school years have been associated with negative outcomes in many domains, including poorer school performance, difficulties with attention, impulse control, behaviour regulation, cognitive functioning, and emotional difficulties. The Child & Adolescent Sleep Clinic at Flinders University provides assessment and treatment for common sleep problems in childhood and adolescence (including infants from 6 months of age). We have appointments available immediately, allowing families to address their child’s sleep difficulties. After obtaining a GP referral, families pay a once-off assessment fee of $300 (reduced for health care card holders), with no further out-of-pocket costs for subsequent appointments.
