One expert says routineis the keep to an effective sleep schedule.
As school age kids switch from summer vacation mode to a back-to-class routine, sleep schedules also have to be adjusted. Dr. Casey Burg, a sleep specialist at Children's Hospital and Medical Center, says routine is the key.
"(We need to) get them on a set schedule to where they do everyting the same... they'll wake up at the same time every day," Burg says.
Berg tells Channel 6 News young children need at least ten hours of sleep a night. High school students should get nine.
