Return to Learn + Return to Play = Return to Performance
Concussion Chalk Talk is a program that assists schools with their concussion management policies and procedures. Athletic trainers manage concussions in sports with a stepwise progression back to play. Likewise, the student design is to assist schools with understanding the necessary academic accommodations for a concussed student.
The program includes the formation of a Concussion Management Team (CMT) consisting of key personnel both inside and outside of the school. A highlight of the program is the presence of a neuropsychologist on the CMT, who will visit the school to consult on challenging cases and answer questions.
As no two concussions are the same, individualized treatment is preferred to safely and efficiently return students to performance.
Concussion Chalk Talk is present in 10 New Hampshire schools and Pinkerton Academy is proud to be one.
The Concussion Management Team at Pinkerton Academy is lead by:
