The Halton District School Board was recently featured in the New York Times for the great work it has done to implement a new component to its curriculum on Concussion Awareness. This new curriculum teaching about traumatic brain injuries has been rolled out to 9th graders and they are beginning to teach certain components to grades 3 and 6 as well.
This new component of their education is thought to be the first of its kind across North America and the Halton Board is hoping it will become a template that many other boards will adopt.
Check out more about this valuable new programming in the following from the New York Times.
