Parent’s Guide for Returning Your Child to School After Concussion | DoDLive

The Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center (DVBIC) in Silver Spring, Md., released a free 26-page guide that offers practical advice to parents on how to recognize the signs and symptoms of a concussion, information on treatment and recovery, and what a parent can do to support a child’s recovery and successfully return to school. The new Parent’s Guide to Returning Your Child to School After a Concussion helps parents of children who have been diagnosed with a mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI), also known as a concussion, successfully return to school and related activities.
Caution: Depending on your computer and internet browser security settings, clicking the following lin to download the Parent’s Guide may cause an “Expired Certificate” error. The DOD webmaster assures me the error is because the DOD security certificate is not commercially available. As such, I ignored the warning and downloaded the article. So far, nothing traumatic has happened to my computer.

  1. Keep posting articles like these. Schools don’t know what to do and see TBIS just like any other disability.
    I have become an advocate due to the indifference my son’s former school displayed.
