Lack of stamina in SPD teen (avoider)

by Heidi
(Washington State)

I have a 14 year old, elite level soccer player, SPD son. He is an avoider.

His coaches alwyas question (and his dad) why he always seems "tired" and lacks stamina even though he can jog for days. He plays soccer at a very high level so he is in excellent shape. But, I am just learning that lack of stamina and SPD go hand in hand and would like to know more about it. He can also take multiple naps throughout the day when he's not in school.

Thank you for sharing any information that you can!
