Ahead of the Game: The Parent's Guide To Youth Sports Concussion
Rosemarie Scolaro Moser's new book, Ahead of the Game: The Parent's Guide to Youth Sports Concussion (University Press of New England) is just what it says it is: a practical, no-nonsense guide for parents about sport concussions.
Moser brings to the subject matter a unique background: As a clinician who has treated hundreds if not thousands of concussed student-athletes at the Sports Concussion Center of New Jersey, she brings real world experience to the subject, not just as a neuropsychologist with specialized expertise on baseline and post-concussion neurocognitive testing but in the management and treatment of concussions, including the academic accommodations that are often needed during the sometimes long road to recovery.Read more
