Tip Sheets

When we started working with educators on various Tip Sheet topic ideas, teachers were clear that anything over one page long was too much for busy teachers to read. We made a commitment to our readers that each topic would be condensed to one page of critical information.

Over 30 Tip Sheets have been written on the topic of Return to School and Return to Learn post-COVID, post-concussion and post-cognitive inefficiencies. Tip Sheets are rotated on this website so that all Tip Sheets are highlighted during a years’ time. This information is excellent for parents, healthcare providers and educators to enable teams to be on the same page with respect to concussion management supporting students who Return to Learn (and struggle) due to any number of medical or psychological issues. We encourage all groups to read the Tip Sheets and share them widely.
