BIAA's Work on Return-to-Learn Highlighted in "Associations Now"

03-Jun-2014

At the White House Healthy Kids and Safe Sports Concussion Summit last week, President Obama launched a number of private and public initiatives aimed at raising youth concussion awareness. The Brain Injury Association of America was there, pushing for better “return to learn” policies for student-athletes.

“The fact is that the number one job of a student is to go to school,” said Susan Connors, President and CEO of BIAA. “If your brain has been injured, you cannot expect to go and sit in a classroom and perform at the same level, just like you cannot jump back onto the playing field and perform at the same level. What would happen is you would become incredibly frustrated, and your behavior would reflect the difficulties that you’re having.”
