I am convinced that my 13 year old is shutting down and falling asleep in school due to masking. With teacher help I have been tracking his sleep at night and during the day. He only falls asleep during passive learning and concert/ marching band. When he isn't sleeping he is described as distracting to others and off task. He is very bright and gets bored easily. Any advice as to how to help him stay awake during class? They have worked with him and I can tell he is starting to trust the teachers but they get frustrated when he won't stay awake. They have had him take walks and breaks but he goes back to nodding off when he returns. They have even seen him falling asleep while working so they know it isn't always intentional.
