School Staff – Physical

Youth concussion and brain injury continues to be in the news both in Iowa and Nationally. There is a rising trend to take this as a serious matter with our youth. We have found that concussions are best managed by a Multi-Disciplinary team to optimize recovery. It is imperative that those in a youth’s life know where they belong in array of supports and those teams communicate with each other.

As a member of the “School Staff – Physical Team,” your role is imperative to the youth in identifying possible concussion, assessing physical symptoms daily and supporting contact between the school and home. While the youth and your team will be excited to have each youth Return to Play as soon as possible we know that you will be supporting their Return to Learn whole heartedly so that their Return to Play is safe. The REAP manual guides you through guidelines to Return to Play when they are ready!
