  • Description:
    Each year hundreds of thousands of K-12 students sustain a concussion as a result of a fall, motor-vehicle crash, collision on the playground or sports field, or other activity. Most will have a good recovery. However, school professionals, like you, will often be challenged with helping return a student to school who may still be experiencing concussion symptoms— symptoms that can result in learning problems and poor academic performance.

    Knowledge of a concussion’s potential effects on a student, and appropriate management of the return-to-school process, is critical for helping students recover from a concussion.

    That’s where you come in. This fact sheet provides steps that school professionals can take to help facilitate a student’s return to school and recovery after a concussion. It emphasizes the importance of a collaborative approach by a team that includes not only school professionals, but also the student’s family and the healthcare provider(s) managing the medical aspects of the student’s recovery.
