A Gap in Teacher Training: Working With Students Who Have Concussions

Education Week
A growing number of children have experienced a brain injury—yet most teachers have never learned in preparation or professional development how to work with them. "I think people are realizing that there are a lot more of these kids out there in schools than we realized," said Ann Glang, the director and research professor at the Center on Brain Injury Research and Training at the University of Oregon. She has worked to create an online course for teachers to learn evidence-based strategies for working with students with traumatic brain injuries, including concussions. The course relaunched last month to offer teachers credit for a continuing education unit.
