Interventions for Sleep Changes
Start the school day with less demanding academic tasks
Switch more difficult content or courses to later in the school day.
Allow the student specified "rest" times to avoid sleeping during instruction
Allow "rest breaks" for 5-15 minutes in the morning and afternoon if needed after academic intervals.
Start the school day later based on the student's sleep-wake cycle
Allow the student to arrive and stay later to complete academic work.
