Play It Safe on Youth-Sports Concussions With New EdWeek E-Book

Struggling to keep up with all the latest news and research in the youth-sports concussion realm?

You're in luck. There's a new Education Week e-book for that.

In Playing it Safe: Reducing Concussions and Head Injuries in Youth Sports, you'll read about how youth-sports organizations and states have taken matters into their own hands when it comes to improving student-athlete safety. From youth-concussion laws to sport-specific rule changes, the landscape of youth sports looks dramatically different from where it was even five years ago.

We've also highlighted some of the most relevant research, position statements, and guidelines regarding youth-sports concussions, including a study that compares every state's youth-concussion law through the end of 2012. You'll learn why one author would like to see children younger than 14 restricted from playing tackle football or body-checking in ice hockey, and discover the dangers of returning to play too quickly after suffering a concussion.

The back of the e-book features a list of resources on concussions and head injuries, including links back to our youth-concussion-law map and the studies mentioned throughout.

So, if you need your youth-sports concussion information while on the move, download the new e-book today, now available for your Kindle, iPad or Nook for $4.95. We'd also appreciate you reviewing the e-book after reading through it.

Check out some of our other EdWeek e-books, too, on bullying prevention, implementing the Common Core State Standards, classroom management, and a look at what President Barack Obama's second term could mean for education policy.
