Return to learn

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Students who have sustained a concussion often have symptoms that affect their full participation in academics. Physical symptoms, such as headaches and dizziness, and cognitive symptoms, such as difficulty concentrating or remembering, may affect students as they try to get through their normal academic workload. The concept of returning a student to normal learning following a concussion is gaining attention, as previously the emphasis has been on the process of returning a student back to full physical activity. Appropriate guidance is needed to assist the student with the transition back into the school environment.
