REAP (Remove/Reduce, Educate, Adjust/Accommodate, Pace) is a community-based concussion management approach that utilizes the strengths of multidisciplinary teams:

  • Family Team: Parents, guardians and students have an integral part in recognizing and managing a concussion
  • Medical Team: Healthcare providers have an integral part in diagnosing, treating and ultimately "clearing" a concussion
  • School Teams: Two school teams - the School Team/Academic and the School Team/Physical - are essential in helping the student with a concussion successfully return to learn (RTL) and return to play (RTP)
