We have all had students we have worked with who have suffered from a concussion. Some may receive academic accommodation, some may tough it out and suffer through their injury, and some may just disappear and then try and play catch up. This workshop will give you an understanding of how concussions affect academics. It will explain the relationship between Accessible Learning and the Humber Varsity program for their athletes diagnosed with a concussion, the stages of the Return to Learn process, and how it is implemented. It will also give you strategies on how you can best assist your students dealing with a concussion.
- Gain an understanding of how concussions affect academics.
