Why are we talking about COVID-19 and concussion in the same sentence?
Because the neurological symptoms of Long COVID-19, classified by the CDC as BRAIN FOG— difficulty thinking, remembering, concentrating, completing cognitive tasks quickly, emotional and behavioral reactions, are similar to the cognitive symptoms we have seen and researched for 20+ years in students following a concussion.
The Teacher Acute COVID/Concussion Tool (TACT) is the ONLY digital tool for return to learn Post-COVID-19! No advanced training needed; No time out of the classroom! The TACT delivers 4 weeks of COVID-19 academic supports, via teacher email – in “real-time”—just when the student with Long COVID is ready to re-enter the classroom.
What Is TACT?
TACT is a customized concussion and COVID-19 management email tool based on each teacher’s unique responses to an online questionnaire (taking less than five minutes) about their teaching style and is immediately delivered to the teacher’s inbox outlining recommendations for environmental and academic content adjustments for the classroom. No personal student information is shared. The questionnaire only seeks information about the teacher’s personal teaching style for that class.
