This tip card takes a team approach to concussion management in student-athletes by involving athletic staff, school nurses, educators, and parents in the monitoring and recovery process. It gives athletic staff information to identify warning signs of a possible concussion during sports or practice. Early and late signs of concussion are identified. Stressing the importance of resting the student-athlete’s brain after a concussion, it provides tips and strategies to support the student-athlete in the classroom and at home during the recovery process. This tip card is ideal for athletic and school staff to distribute to parents as well as for in-service training of staff.
