This workshop is for active Oakland County Public Special Educators.

Students returning to the classroom after concussion face many learning difficulties and pose unique challenges to the staff who support them.

Additionally, attendees will return to their buildings with the ability to coach colleagues in the strategies and skills learned. This day of professional learning will be led by Dr. Karen McAvoy, PsyD, an internationally recognized expert on pediatric brain injury and the co-founder of the website Get Schooled on As a dually credentialed clinical and school psychologist, and author of brain injury policy for the Colorado Department of Education, Dr. McAvoy will prepare you and your school team to best serve students returning to learn after a concussion.
