Return to Learn

Return to Learn: teacher helping student
The Nebraska Concussion Awareness Act was amended in 2014 to include help for the student returning to school after a concussion. Effective July 2014, this new component established the requirement for a Return to Learn protocol for the student who has sustained a concussion.

As a licensed health care professional, you can help parents and school staff better understand how to help the injured athlete return to the learning environment.

The Nebraska Concussion Awareness Act Return to Learn protocol recognizes that a student who has sustained a concussion and returned to school may need special attention and assistance until the student is fully recovered.

Recovery will take place in stages. The student will need extensive rest in the early stages, followed by gradually increased mental activity.

Recovery will be an individual process. As a licensed health care professional, your observations and guidance will help the student, parents, and staff travel the road to recovery together.
