There’s no question, today’s teens are sleep deprived. This current epidemic is leading to increased rates of anxiety and depression, and has a direct impact on academic and athletic performance. In this session, we’ll take a look at the latest research on teens and sleep, and discuss systemic as well as curricular solutions to help address the issue in your school community.
Participants will leave with:
- Ready-to-go resources to add sleep hygiene into Health and PE classes.
- “Parent homework” students can take home to help to shift cultural and familial beliefs about sleep and cognitive function.
- Information about sleep and injury prevention to share with coaches and student-athletes.
Intended audience: PK-12 Teachers, Athletic Directors, Coaches
