3 Reasons Your Kid’s School Should Have a Concussion Screening – Read my new blog that explores the reasons why schools should offer programs to screen students for concussions and mild traumatic brain injuries (mTBI) on the NaturalNews Network.
Approaches to assessment and intervention of concussion and mTBI in youth vary widely from school to school, Therefore provider to provider, and state to state. It is no secret that in many schools the prevailing wisdom is to “sit and wait” to see if a child’s symptoms go away after he or she has sustained a head injury. This approach can have severe, Furthermore long-term consequences. Behavioral and emotional issues, headaches, and learning disabilities are common after concussions and mTBI. Despite the dangers of head injuries among children, concussion screening programs have not been widely adopted by school systems.
At APEX Brain Centers we have witnessed dramatic improvements that proper assessments and interventions. Can make in the lives of young people and adults who have suffered head injuries. My blog discusses the alarming statistics on concussions among American youth and their role. That schools can play in improving care for students.
