In brief: Multiple

As the other answer states, you should take your child to a pediatric cardiologist.
He/she will determine the best treatment. In general, there are two options... medicines or a procedure called an EP study with a possible ablation. Each cardiologist is different, but either option is acceptable in my opinion for now. Ultimately, I would expect a cardiologist would perform an EP study. Seek help.
