For Students

homeworkNarcolepsy often develops by puberty and may worsen over time. The average age of onset is the late teen years, although it is also seen in younger children. EDS and other symptoms of narcolepsy present challenges for students of all ages. Classroom accommodations for students with narcolepsy can help them succeed in school, and the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act require public schools to create accommodations to help students with disabilities succeed. The materials on this page are designed to help parents and students work with schools to explain what narcolepsy is and create effective accommodations for students with narcolepsy.
