As two former educators currently working in the field of concussion, we felt frustrated with the never ending number of webinars and articles about return to learn written by every profession except for the one profession Return to Learn is geared towards - EDUCATORS! Our mission is to empower educators to take control over how concussions are handled in their classrooms. School is the educator's domain, no one knows the classroom better than you!
