Summary

You play a critical role in helping a student recover from concussion.

Key Points

  • After a concussion, the brain needs both cognitive and physical rest.
  • Anything that taxes the brain, including reading, texting, using computers or mobile devices, and even listening to audio recordings or music can negatively impact recovery.
  • Students need to be eased back into schoolwork with a Gradual Return to Activity Plan that includes a Return to Academics Progression.
  • Work with the Concussion Management Team to provide the temporary accommodations your student needs.
