Children with airway disorders often have identifiable symptoms. Unfortunately, too many children are not seeing pediatricians and pediatric dentists before the age of six, and far too many pediatricians and pediatric dentists are not looking for the signs and symptoms.
There is a silent epidemic weaving its way throughout the children of the world. Sleep issues, an inability to focus or concentrate, lack of energy, and even depression are all symptoms that can be traced back to childhood airway disorders. If caught and treated early enough, the pain and suffering a child experiences can be avoided. Without identification and treatment, a child suffering from an airway disorder will experience pain, exhaustion, mental issues, and even death.
That's why the Children's Airway First Foundation (CAFF) was established. We are on a mission to ensure that both parents and professionals become educated on the causes of childhood airway disorders, the signs and symptoms to look for, and what treatment options are available.
Understanding the signs and symptoms and how breathing and eating play a role in the development of childhood airway disorders is the first step towards saving your child. CAFF has created a rich and growing resource library to help both parents and medical professionals understand this epidemic and how each can help to save the lives and well-being of more than 400-million children around the world.
CAFF is dedicated to supporting professional research, education, training in comprehensive pediatric airway treatments, and breakthrough diagnostic tools for screening, evaluating, and treating children with airway disorders before the age of six to prevent systemic damage to their brains and bodies.
Through education, training, and support programs for both parents and medical professionals, CAFF is driven to end the global epidemic of children's airway disorders.
The Girl That Started a Mission
Savvy was a bright, energetic girl who began having focus issues, weakness, and exhaustion. Unfortunately, no one knew why...because no one looked for the signs.
COMPREHENSIVE PEDIATRIC AIRWAY TREATMENT EDUCATION
There is strong evidence to support that modern civilization has actually caused the silent epidemic affecting more than 400-million children globally. The common practices associated with what we eat, how we eat, how we breathe, and well-intentioned treatments such as extracting teeth, and giving children braces all play roles in childhood airway disorders.
CAFF is focused on not only bringing this epidemic to light but also on educating both parents and medical professionals about the causes of many childhood airway disorders. When we understand the causes, we can work collectively to make changes and irradicate these conditions.
