G.F. Strong School Program
The G. F. Strong School Program is a Provincial Resource Program which seeks to meet the educational needs of students with neurological impairments sustained through illness or injury. The goals of the program include: to offer education to students, parents, and school professionals regarding the effects of concussion on student learning; to assist with the development of Return to Learn Plans; and to develop appropriate individual academic intervention for students returning to school after an illness or injury. GFS school staff are active team members on the Adolescent Complex Concussion Clinic at G. F. Strong Rehabilitation Centre.
