In brief: Fairly

Snoring used to just be "a thing" but we're realizing it's a bigger deal.
When kids are having restless sleep, mouth breathing, bad snoring, and waking at night, it can affect deep and rem sleep. Not achieving these can affect concentration, memory and alertness during the day.

In brief: Sleepiness

If a child has proven sleep apnea he/she will have almost irresistible sleepiness in the day and might affect school behavior.
