TeleHealth Consultation for Your School
Our neuropsychologists work closely with Athletic Trainers and School Nurses from dozens of schools (from Brookline, Massachusetts to London, England!) to provide expert analysis of ImPACT® test results. Many schools have learned the importance of using neurocognitive testing like ImPACT® as a cornerstone of their concussion management program, but staff often realize that interpretation of test results requires special expertise, especially when students have learning issues or ADHD or when recoveries are slow or complicated. Our neuropsychologists are available, via phone-email consultation, to interpret every ImPACT® test a school administers. This interpretation can provide guidance and reassurance to school staff and physicians overseeing the recoveries of their students that cognitive results and symptom profiles obtained in ImPACT® tests are being properly understood in returning students to the classroom and to sports.
“Thank you for your email. I have been meaning for quite some time to write and thank you, Dr. Jackson and Dr. Insalaco for all of your work so far this year. I must say that in the beginning I was slightly skeptical about the reliability of consulting doctors an ocean away. After a week, I was no longer skeptical. The system that is Sports Concussion New England works on many levels.”
“First, I appreciate your acknowledgement of the role of an Athletic Trainer in concussion management as well as my on-site knowledge of the student athletes' as individuals. It is clear that teamwork is a key ingredient of what makes SCNE work.”
“Secondly, the communication level and accessibility of everyone at SCNE is astounding. The consulting clinical neuropsychologists speak in easy to understand and easy to share language in a extremely timely manner. This has been invaluable in several 'tough,' long lasting concussion situations. Our parents have appreciated clear, scientific information explaining the nuances of their child's ImPACT test results. I have appreciated the reliability of quick ImPACT interpretations and return to play recommendations based on test results and subjective information from the "ground" (e.g. self-reported symptoms, teacher reported academic work and parental behavioral anecdotes).”
“And finally, and perhaps most importantly, I have the utmost respect and trust in SCNE's clinical knowledge of concussions and interpretation of ImPACT test results. It is with confidence that I am able to state SCNE's longevity and stellar track record in concussion management as integral part of our overall concussion management protocol. This has proved especially useful in cases where there was no baseline and the student athlete has a differing learning ability such as ADD.”
“SCNE is clearly in the fore-front of concussion management for student athletes--this is especially evident living in London where concussion management is laughable at best. Our families expect the best level of care for their children and SCNE helps us provide that care in a international environment that does not value the importance of concussion management in athletics.”
