Helping Students Recover from a Concussion: Classroom Tips for Teachers (CDC)


How can I help students who are recovering from a concussion? As a teacher, you play an important role in helping students recover from a concussion as they return to school. Making short-term changes to your students' school work load and schedule- and giving them time to help their brain heal- can help them get back to their regular school routine. As they begin to feel better, you can slowly remove these changes.

Concussion symptoms may return as students get back to physical or mental activities, so be sure to watch out for any worsening symptoms (such as heacaches, a hard time concentrating, and/or nausea) and update their parents. (CDC- Centers for Disease Control and Prevention)
