Carilion Clinic’s Psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine team and other departments collaborate to improve sleep in children ages 5-17, using a multi-faceted approach. Once a consultation is scheduled, the following steps will occur:

  • Your child will be evaluated by a child psychiatrist trained in sleep medicine.
  • Sleep hygiene will be discussed, and your child will start a type of therapy called CBT-I to help with insomnia.
  • Evaluation, treatment and therapy will be limited to a few sessions, as indicated clinically.
  • The specialist will assess sleep patterns, review current medications and request referrals for additional labs or sleep studies, if needed. 
  • Behavioral therapy for insomnia may be suggested along with a brief CBT-I course.
