Return to Learn - A Concussion Team Model
Many students who have sustained concussions return to school requiring academic and environmental adjustmnets while the brain heals. School personnel are often not trained on the effects of concussions or ways to help these students transition back to school. Dr. Susan Davies, University of Dayton, in conjunction with the Ohio Department of Health, developed the "Ohio Return to Learn: Concussion Team Model" to provide strategies for Ohio school districts to use when implementing strategies to assist school personnel in this transition. The Concussion Team Model involves collaboration between administration, educators, healthcare providers, parents and the student to safely return the student to the learning environment.
