The Weston School Health Services Office would like to assist you in obtaining free training on Concussion Awareness.
As a parent, with all the current media attention given to concussions, it is hard not to be worried. While there is an inherent risk in sports, especially contact sports, concussions can occur from any type of fall (even on the playground) that can jar and shift the brain. By arming oneself with proper concussion awareness, parents can increase their knowledge base, thus support them in recognizing the signs and symptoms of concussion and help safeguard their children from long term complications.
Parents of student athletes are now required by Massachusetts law to participate in online concussion awareness training.
