If you’ve been following the Linking Research to Classrooms blog, you’ve already learned that concussion is a mild form of traumatic brain injury and that schools and educators play an important role in aiding student recovery from concussion. From providing temporary accommodations to acting as a supportive adult figure for struggling students, teachers need to know about concussion in order to better serve our students.

Want to know more about how concussion impacts the students you teach?  We’ve rounded up some free digital resources to help you learn how best to meet the needs of the students you serve.

The transition back to school after a concussion can be difficult.  Students can continue to experience symptoms long after the initial injury. As a teacher, being knowledgeable about the impact concussion recovery can have on a student’s functioning and learning can help reduce anxiety and help a student move forward in healing while avoiding staling in learning. We hope these resources help you meet the needs of our students.
