Answer

Children should be encouraged to participate in after-school activities and sports. A well-designed exercise program can be beneficial and stimulating. School personnel should have the narcoleptic children refrain from activities if they appear drowsy. Avoidance of foods high in refined sugars may improve daytime sleepiness.
