Resources for Youth (Released May 2021)

In collaboration with youth who have experienced concussion, we have developed two resources that share information about what to do if you have a concussion and how to approaching returning to school after concussion. These two resources have been designed for use by youth and offer a series of recommendations to help children and adolescents with concussion recover safely and return to school and other activities that they enjoy.

One of the key takeaways from @stephmcfarland_ presentation yesterday @icsniagara

“Learning is not a one size fit all, and we need to provide individualized approaches for children and teens.”
