Teacher Acute Concussion Tool (TACT)

The Teacher Acute Concussion Tool (TACT) was developed as a way to deliver the Get Schooled On Concussions Return to Learn content into the hands of the classroom teacher.

70% of students with a concussion get better within 4 weeks.

Empowering classroom teachers to do all they can to support students with concussions quickly, flexibly and over the first 4 weeks is the “window of opportunity”.

Teacher Acute Concussion Tool (TACT):

  • Allows elementary, middle school and high school teachers to answer 7 or 8 questions about HOW they teach, WHAT they teach, WHEN they teach and their use of technology and reading – answering these questions take less than 5 minutes
  • Delivers a customized email immediately into the inbox of the teacher based upon the teacher’s responses
  • Is color-coded by strategy and walks the teacher through the order of interventions
  • Attaches easy to read 1 page Lessons or Tip Sheets for teachers to download for more information (if desired)
  • Reminds the teacher to continue to support the student with a concussion for up to 4 weeks with subsequent emails that automatically arrive in the teacher’s inbox at week 2, week 3 and week 4
  • Builds knowledge and confidence of teachers as they learn how their teaching style can be adjusted to support the needs of students with a concussion
  • Builds capacity of the general education classroom teacher so students feel better and learn better during recovery from their concussion ultimately reducing possible contribution to delayed recovery (symptoms lasting months instead of weeks) and the need for a 504 Plan or IEP
  • The TACT is so easy to use and so self-explanatory that NO advanced or face-to-face training is needed. Classroom teachers get “trained” at the time they get their first student with a concussion in their classroom
  • Provides accountability for teachers, and to parents, that RTL was addressed
  • Allows administrators to prove teacher capacity built (knowledge and confidence), disaggregated by school and district. The TACT does NOT access any student information.
  • Is for ALL students, not just for athletes – because all students with a concussion must return to learn even if they do not return to sports
  • However, a swift return to learn leads to a swifter return to play
