Return-to-Learn Protocol Considerations Following a Concussion

This session is from the NASP 2021 Annual Convention

  • PMD: 3,5
  • Skill Level: Introduction

Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. develop individualized accommodations based on concussion symptoms.
  2. implement concussion management teams in the school setting.
  3. identify student factors that influence strategies for return-to-learn plans.


With child and adolescent concussions on the rise, school psychologists may find themselves as the point person for concussion cases within their school districts. As a result, school psychologists need to be knowledgeable of student factors that influence return-to-learn plans following a concussion. Practitioners will learn strategies for recognition and intervention in response to concussion symptoms and how to effectively advocate for concussion management teams in the school setting.
