Part of Wake Up Narcolepsy’s mission is to provide supportive resources for people with Narcolepsy and their families. During this time of massive daily life alterations, we want to continue to offer those resources.

We are all going through a traumatic event together and as we are adapting to a new normal within our homes some may find it difficult to create structure.

We created a miniseries called Doing Life During COVID-19 to address different aspects of daily life we may need extra support with during this time.

They share insights about the main issues the educational system is facing during the mandated homeschooling. They discuss from their experience the potential positives and negatives for CWN being educated at home.
