Project: Traineeship in Mild Traumatic Brain Injury and Concussion Management
What are you doing with the project?
The goal of the traineeship is to educate future school psychologists about concussions and brain injury, emphasizing how brain injuries — even mild ones, like concussions — can affect student learning. Our goal is to advocate for students who have sustained a brain injury and bring awareness to those working with students, such as teachers, parents and coaches, to ensure a smooth transition back to the classroom.
