Spring season baseline testing now beginning

Early season baseline cognitive testing is recommended for athletes who are 10 years or older. Most high schools in New England offer baseline testing and have contingencies in place for post injury testing. There is no better feeling than to have a quantifiable measure of an athlete's baseline cognitive functioning. The test is valid for 2-3 seasons. Concussion results in several changes in thinking and behavior that may not be readily noticeable. An athlete who is symptomatic is much more likely to be re-injured if he or she returns to the field of play prematurely. Baseline testing is available using the link below. Michael Sefton, Ph.D. can provide full service assessment and treatment of acute concussion and postconcussion syndrome.  Contact him below: http://www.concussionassessment.wordpress.com
