Sleep Disorders can generate significant impact in the health of children and adolescents at a highly vulnerable period for neurodevelopment. A proper history and physical exam can lead the diagnosis, however there are significant limitations especially in the early phases of illness. Children with specific risks require a high level of suspicion, and early diagnostic studies. This review describes various diagnostic alternatives, feasible in different clinical situations, during sleep or wakefulness. These diagnostic studies may be useful in detection and early treatment of Sleep Disorders.
