Through the lens of a sleep disorder patient, Peoria Public Radio discusses pediatric sleep.

At 13-years-old Annaliza Hammond should have all of the energy in the world. Instead, her teacher was scolding her for nearly dozing off in class on a daily basis.

“She told my parents that she saw that I was going to fall asleep and if I didn’t call my parents she knew that she was going to.”

Annaliza’s mom Kimberly had to wake her up every day for school.
