Has your child ever had a concussion? Then check out ACoRN: “After Concussion, Return to Normality.”

While there are good resources on guidance for safe return to sport following a head injury, there has been no guidance suggesting a safe return to education.

This ACoRN resource focuses on the safe return to education for your child after a concussion. It follows a traffic light system approach advocating a “stop” of activities (red), gradually re-introducing learning activities (amber) and culminating with return to normal activity level (green).

This resource will give parents the understanding as to why young people may require time away from education following a head injury. With an ultimate aim of them returning safely without the need for further time away from school.
