    Information for Parents, Teachers, and Coaches

    A concussion is a brain injury and should be treated seriously. The more you know about preventing concussion, and treating it early if it does occur, the better it is for you or your athlete.

    Neurocognitive Testing

    Baseline ImPACT Testing

    The baseline ImPACT test is a preseason physical of the brain for athletes, tracking information such as memory, reaction time, speed, and concentration. It’s not an IQ or full neuropsychological evaluation, but rather a tool that can be compared with a later ImPACT test taken after a suspected concussion.
