Advocacy by and for People with ABI (Acquired Brain Injury)
Public Policy of the Brain Injury Network Policy dated 6-13-09
School Age Children with Acquired Brain Injury: School age children suspected of having experienced an acquired brain injury (which includes concussion and/or tbi) should be evaluated by a medical doctor. Subsequent to injury and with continuing medical supervision, such students should also be evaluated and monitored by school psychologists. Students who have sustained acquired brain injuries should undergo extensive assessment within the school system to establish the extent of their brain injury issues. Students with suspected brain injury (even apparently "minor" concussion) should not be readmitted to sports events or programs without the express concurrence of a medical specialist.
