School Counselors' Perceptions of Academic Support for Concussed Students
Objective: School counselors are important members of the concussion management team. However, little is known about their perceptions of academic adjustments for concussed studentathletes. Methods: Participants were solicited to complete the Beliefs, Attitudes and Knowledge of Pediatric Athletes with Concussion – School Counselor (BAKPAC-SC) survey. Results: In all, 669 school counselors across 50 states responded to the BAKPAC-SC. Most participants agreed that concussion can affect school performance and disagreed that there is too much focus on concussions in sports. Attitudes and experiences were related to access to an athletic trainer, years of experience, and a personal history of concussion. Conclusions: Overall, school counselors had positive attitudes toward academic adjustments for concussed student athletes.
