Fusion hosts a free webinar to help parents understand different learning challenges, and how the power of assessment can reveal them
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., Jan. 3, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Fusion Education Group will host a free webinar with Neurologics which will help families better understand that traumatic brain injuries are repairable, and the potential recovery paths available to children. A recent study found that 1 in 4 children who suffered a minor head injury are likely to suffer from chronic post-concussion syndrome.
“The science around brain injury is promising and offers countless possibilities to parents seeking guidance and support as they navigate recovery for their children,” said Fusion Education Group Chief Executive Officer Peter Ruppert. “Too often we look at brain trauma as an ending. We know that is untrue, and we are pleased to offer families a forum with the experts at Neurologics.”
Fusion Education Group is a national leader in personalized learning and this month continues its free virtual webinar series when it hosts Neurologics founder Karen Odell-Barber, MS, CISD and Dallas Hack, MD, MPH, Chairman of the Neurologics Scientific Advisory Board.

The recent study1 “Persistent post-concussive syndrome (PPCS) in children after mild traumatic brain injury is prevalent and vastly underdiagnosed” published in Nature in March 2022 found that 25 percent of the who suffer a traumatic brain injury and are admitted to the Emergency Department may suffer from persistent symptoms years after the acute event and many of their diagnoses is missed by medical professionals involved in their care. Odell-Barber and Hack will help parents gain a better understanding of brain trauma and repair through accurate assessment. They will delve into the assessment process, treatable cognitive impairments, achieving Peak Performance, and discuss traumatic brain injury (TBI), probable causes, and how trauma manifests in behavioral issues and diminished educational functioning.
“It’s our hope that with more information in hand, families feel empowered and hopeful about the path to cognitive recovery, as well as educational performance improvement,” said Odell-Barber.
Webinar attendees will be introduced to the Neurologics Brain Mapping and Optimization program which can help identify and correct various learning differences, as well as repair damage from a concussion, diagnosed or otherwise.
