Chronic Fatigue in The Classroom and Dyslexia

by Rich on December 16, 2011 · 0 comments

School teachers have many challenges facing them in their daily adventures in the classroom. Some of their battles include keeping order in the class with rowdy/talkative students present, creating exciting and engaging lesson plans, and yes, teaching to exhausted students.


I was recently reading a blog post that quoted the BBC on saying, “One in 100 secondary school pupils could be missing classes because of chronic fatigue syndrome, also known as Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME), say researchers”.  I think back to my days in the classroom, and I’m almost shocked to hear that only one in 100 are affected by Chronic Fatigue.

So, why can energy be so low in the classroom?  The blogger goes on to talk about how you can improve Chronic Fatigue by understanding how each inidividual energy system works and even mentions a book to check out.  It is also mentioned that food and substance intolerances may be draining students.  A website with more info is mentioned.  Please do check out the blog post for the great resources!

Chronic Fatigue and Dyslexia

The blog talks about how when students are not taught in a way they can understand, exhaustion should be expected.  This part should be obvious, and it does make sense when you think about it.  For Dyslexics or anyone that struggles to read or comprehend information, boredom, frustration, and fatigue is an obvious result.

Educators need to present information in a way that each individual will understand, which is a major battle for teachers.
