This webinar will increase participant awareness and understanding of concussions in children and adolescents. The presenters will review the prevalence, causes, symptoms, and implications of pediatric concussions. Participants will learn about how the school psychologist’s existing skills in prevention, intervention, consultation, and data-based decision making can be applied to better meet the needs of students who have sustained concussions.
Upon completion of the session, the participant will learn how to:
(1) describe what a concussion is, its manifestations in the school setting, how we assess it, and the available tools;
(2) identify key management strategies, and define the unique and relevant skill set of the school psychologist and how it fits well with the management of concussions in the school setting, including the various roles that can be played, and
(3) define the scope, roles, functioning, and development of the multidisciplinary team.
