This one-day conference is intended for clinicians and school personnel who are involved in the management of care for students with concussion, including the return-to-school and return-to-physical activity plans.

Sessions will provide guidelines for the evaluation and diagnosis of concussion, including the latest developments in clinical, imaging and neurocognitive research and clinical management. Models for managing student athletes in the academic setting from elementary school through college will be presented. Therapeutic strategies for managing concussions with prolonged symptoms will be reviewed in depth, including vestibular, and aerobic rehabilitation, as well as vision therapy. There will be case discussions to enhance the learner’s understanding of the multi-faceted approach to managing concussions.
