Dear Parents--It’s hard to know whether your child is having a problem and how serious it is. We’ve put together a list of things that are not normal and should not be ignored. These things are signs of a problem that may need specific treatment. If you see these with your child, please insist on seeing someone who knows what they mean - either an ear nose, and throat (ENT) or a pediatric ENT who deals with upper airway obstruction in children. You may need to see more than one specialist but one of those specialists needs to be a pediatric ENT who deals with upper airway obstruction in kids.


Here is the list:
1. Snoring
2. Mouth breathing
3. Stopping breathing when asleep

4. Teeth grinding when asleep
5. Sleep talking
6. Sleepwalking
7. Night terrors
8. Bedwetting beyond about 8 years of age, maybe even 5
9. Waking up tired
10. Tired during the day
11. Emotional sensitivity- for example, cries at drop of a hat, moody, grumpy, anger management issues 
12. Educational problems
13. Behavioral issues
14. Sleeping with the head arched back
15. Restless sleep, tossing and turning
16. The bed is all messed up 
17. Sweating at night 
18. Chewing on food and then spitting it out consistently- especially meat
19. Repeated ear infections
20. Drools on the pillow
21. Wakes up with a headache
22. Gasping or waking with a startle
23. Fidgety during the day, can’t sit still
24. Has symptoms suggestive of ADHD
25. Must be propped up on a few pillows to sleep
26. Wakes with a dry mouth and/or dry lips


Our 10 year old daughter just completed Vita's program, and we couldn't be happier with the results. From the moment I met Vita, I knew she was going to be the perfect person to support us and our daughter as she worked to end her bad oral habit.

Vita is warm and caring, encouraging, compassionate, thorough and knowledgeable. We are so thankful for her positive approach and how much we've learned along the way!
