Sleep Problems and Prader-Willi Syndrome
Experts at the Pediatric Sleep Center Provide Sleep Assessment and Treatment for Children with Prader-Willi Syndrome
Our highly-trained experts at University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital Pediatric Sleep Center know that healthy sleep is vital for every child’s optimal mental, emotional and physical development.

Sleep problems with Prader-Willi syndrome may include:
- Gasping for breath while sleeping
- Trouble falling asleep
- Excessive daytime sleepiness
- Difficulty staying asleep
- Early morning waking
- Bedwetting at night
