My friend ds has no sn and she struggles to get him through the afternoon without him falling asleep. He sneaks off for naps and will fall asleep in the car if she goes out in the afternoon. He sleeps about 13 hours at night. I think its rare to be that sleepy though. My friend with cp def sleeps more than me. I assumed it was because she has to make such a huge effort to do anything but she has never actually said so.
its causing a problem with the school. All dd's classmates will be going full time next week. No way can dd do that. She'll be the only one not full time. Thing is, I can see this going on till Y1!!! I'm guessing the late to bed and poor sleep doesn't help (so why does she wake at 7 on a bloody weekend?) If she gets over tired she will be prone to more seizures.
