'Return to Learn' helps students post-concussion

Across the nation, concussion protocols are in place to guide student athletes' safe return to sports participation. But no clear guidelines exist for students' appropriate return to the classroom. Charlie Yanny explains how, after his concussions, he faced debilitating headaches, dizziness and short-term memory loss, which made going to school a challenge.

Dr. Monica Vavilala and researchers at Harborview Medical Center created "Return to Learn," a road map for schools to help youths recover their academic well-being.
