BrainSTEPS Presents: Concussion in the Classroom - Return to Learning

Uploaded: October 12, 2012 |  0 Comments  | 

Concussions are traumatic brain injuries. Returning to the demands of school following concussion can significantly increase and prolong symptoms if not appropriately planned for and supported by school personnel. In Pennsylvania, over 20,000 concussions occur annually in children and adolescents. To prepare districts to serve this rapidly identified population of students, the PA Department of Education and the BrainSTEPS Program have joined together to provide training to districts on concussion and how to develop a plan for return to academics following concussion. This training will prepare districts with an understanding of concussion, adjustments that need to be made after concussion and accommodations to employ within the school setting during the first 4 weeks of recovery.
