Often for a student to Return to physical education classes following a concussion they need to go through the Return to Play Protocol. Return to Play was designed to return athletes to competition and is predicated on a student being symptom free before they can start the protocol. If school districts use this for physical education classes students can miss many weeks of class and the social, physical, and emotional benefits that these classes provide. Also, research has shown activity can be beneficial for recovery from concussion.

This interactive webinar will examine a new approach to Return to Physical Education after a concussion. The process of a gradual return to activity will be examined. Also, impediments for the implementation of return to physical education will also be discussed. Solutions will be offered to help clear these roadblocks.
