SLPs are caught in the midst of the concussion wave. Our school-based practices are changing, but not all environments have embraced the roles of the SLP in pediatric mild traumatic brain injury (TBI). This session will discuss the newest research in school-based concussion care as well as considerations about advocating for SLP roles in the care of students with mild TBI.
