Feedback form is now closed.
Summary:
Curious about concussions? Want to know how to support students in your classes (core and option) who have sustained a concussion? Join us as we provide an overview of what a concussion is, discuss typical recovery in youth, and how to support students returning to school following a concussion. We will cover a variety of ways to support students including academic accommodations, team-based communication, tools and technology resources, and supporting their social/emotional well-being. Case vignettes will be used to provide examples of students, and what can be done to support them. These vignettes are intended to be interactive and stimulate discussion – what’s worked for you in the past and how can we share that with others?


Detailed Overview:
This workshop will provide a brief overview of concussions including 1) what is a concussion; 2) signs and symptoms of a concussion; 3) how to recognize if a student may have sustained a concussion; 4) typical recovery of a concussion in youth; 5) stepwise recovery patterns for school and sports/physical education class; and 6) how to support a student with a concussion at school.

Most of the time in the session will focus on how to support a student in your class (academic and option classes) or your school who has sustained a concussion. Topics will include 1) provision of academic accommodations; 2) team-based communication; 3) social-emotional support for the student; 4) technology and equipment resources; and 5) the role of the student in their recovery and return to school.

This session will include interactive components, including using case vignettes of students who have sustained a concussion and their symptoms/recovery trajectory. Case vignettes will provide an overview of a student and their symptoms, their academic accommodations (if any) pre-concussion, and their course load (including core and option courses). There will examples used for both junior high and high school students and teachers. You will then work in small groups to determine how best to support the student in their return to school. This will be used to help stimulate discussion and provide opportunity for practicing skills learned in the session. There will also be a dedicated question period at the end of the session.

This session was developed in alignment with recommendations from teachers and school administrators, and students who had sustained a concussion, whom Heather interviewed as part of her PhD thesis work
