Return to Learn is not an afterthought to Return to Play. In fact, a successful return to school and return to learn is essential BEFORE a student should be “cleared” to return to play. A very motivated student-athlete can help him/herself get back into the game as soon as possible by being a good self-advocate working closely with all teachers on an individualized, progressive and forward moving Return to Learn plan in all classes.
The Get Schooled On Concussions Return to Learn Lesson plan is a teacher and student friendly understanding of concussions supported by easy to read 1-page Tip Sheets. The Tip Sheets outline various practical classroom suggestions throughout Tier 1 and Tier 2 levels of academic support. It is a great entry point to Return to Learn. However, field data has shown that a book, any book, this book, alone, is not enough to direct teachers as they navigate the complicated waters of Return to Learn. That is why GetSchooledOnConcussions.com sells the Concussion Lesson Plan only as a supplement to the TACT or as a training guide to one of the 3 Get Schooled On Concussions trainings.
As educators, we have seen the Return to Learn culture change happen in schools and districts. The common denominator to that change is a dedicated commitment to the empowerment of teachers, related service providers and administrators and the immersion of the entire staff in the understanding and responsibility of return to learn before return to play. Once a staff truly understands return to learn via the TACT or one of the GetSchooledOnConcussions.com trainings, additional Concussion Lesson Plan booklets provide powerful desktop guidance.
