APPOINTMENTS ARE NECESSARY!!!!
Contact: Jeannine Donato, RN, Baseline Test Administrator
Having a Baseline test in place is an invaluable tool used by doctors to determine the severity of a concussion and to provide proper treatment. Along with physical assesment, ImPACT testing puts a strong foundation in place to manage the concussion properly and return your student-athlete to school and to play. ImPACT testing is a computerized eurocognitive exam that measures your child's congnative abilities such as recall, reaction time and pattern recognition. The test takes approximately 35 minutes to administer. Test scores are stored on ImPACT's scure site and are password protected. Test results are provided to ImPACT specialists if an injury is suspected. Test scores are then compared to the baseline test. Post injury testing and visits are provided by Credentialed ImPACT Consultants listed on the ImPACT website.
Baseline ImPACT Testing can be given to athletes 10 and up and is valid for two years. Cost of the Baseline is $40.00. Visit www.a-headofthegame.com for more information about concussions and ImPACT Testing!
