Dear HLWW High School Parents:

Free concussion management program
HLWW High School, in partnership with Ridgeview Medical Care Center - Delano, is pleased to offer a concussion management program called ‘ImPACTTM’ for all student athletes in grades 7-12.  ImPACTTM is a computer-based program that measures brain function in areas such as: attention span, working memory, sustained and selective attention time, non-verbal problem solving, and reaction time. 

 

The ImPACTTM test is administered before athletes participate in a sport to get a baseline score. If a head injury occurs during the course of a sports season, the same test is repeated. The ‘before and after’ comparison assesses the degree of any brain injury or impairment and is used to help determine when it is safe for an athlete to return to playing their sport.

 
Baseline testing
Baseline testing for HLWW  High School athletes is free. If your child sustains a concussion during the school year, post-injury testing will be available at the high school or at Ridgeview Medical Care Center.   There is no charge for post-injury testing, but your child may need to follow-up with a doctor, and you may have a charge depending on your insurance coverage. Baseline testing for HLWW athletes will begin August 16th.  Baseline testing will be for any athlete that has not had a baseline test in the last year ( testing is done every other year)  Coaches get a list of athletes who need testing at the begingin of each season.
