The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has designed a new online concussion training for school professionals. This new free training, HEADS UP to Schools: Online Concussion Training for School Professionals, which takes 45-60 minutes to complete, is designed to help classroom teachers (grades K-12), school administrators, paraprofessionals, teacher’s aides, and other staff who work with students to understand the following:
- How a concussion may affect a student’s learning, emotions, and behavior;
- How to identify and monitor signs and symptoms of concussion; and
- How to help students successfully return to school and recover from a concussion.
