    About the Conference

    Most people with a concussion recover quickly and fully. But for some people, symptoms can last for days, weeks, or longer. In general, recovery may be slower among older adults, young children, and teens. (CDC.org)

     The day’s presentations will focus on the impact a concussion has on a student physically, emotionally and academically from onset to recovery from the initial injury. Concussion practitioners and brain injury experts will guide attendees through various topics that address the most significant needs of our students as they recover in the “return to learn” process. Managing a student with a concussion is truly a team effort that involves family, medical, and academic involvement.

     

    Learner Outcomes/Course Outline:

    • Participants will be able to describe clinical updates/ treatments/ research in concussion as they relate to the impact on education.
    • Participants will have examples/ resources of how schools support students with concussions with physical, learning, and emotional needs post injury.
    • Participants will be able to identify three mental health concerns that may arise with concussions
