)-- Lash and Associates Publishing/Training, Inc., leading publisher of brain injury resources, announced the release their new Sports Concussion Tool Kit. This kit, aimed towards middle and high schools, as well as community recreation programs, provides athletic trainers and coaches with a comprehensive concussion program.
Because a concussion is a mild traumatic brain injury, it can result in cognitive, physical and emotional consequences that extend beyond the playing field. The Sports Concussion Tool Kit is a full educational package that covers topics like designing a concussion policy in schools and communities, educating athletic staff about signs and symptoms of concussion, and monitoring student athlete’s recovery from a concussion. The Sports Concussion Tool Kit also covers return-to-play guidelines after a concussion, how to communicate with parents about concussion symptoms and recovery, and collaborating with educators on classroom supports.
“Concussions are a serious risk, especially for children and adolescents,” said Marilyn Lash, Vice President and senior editor at Lash & Associates Publishing/Training, Inc. “A child’s brain continues developing all the way through adolescence and an injury, such as a concussion, interrupts that development. It is important that every family, player, athletic trainer, coach, and school should be educated about the signs, symptoms and consequences of sports concussions.”
