Renberg, Bydalek, Pucci, and Otto Present at Schools
Renberg Speaks at Delaware County, PA Concussion Education Conference
Headway's Sarah Renberg spoke before winter sports to Delaware County, PA school psychologists to aid in their understanding of life with TBI/Concussion and what they can do to support the students in their school. This conference was unique because it focussed solely on the emotional elements of recovery and "return to life" that are so frequently overlooked.
In her talk Sarah took a deep dive into her struggles with learning, pride, self-confidence, and remaining positive throughout the frustration associated with recovery. She was able to give suggestions on how to best support those injured through what worked during her own journey.
Headway is proud to play a role in Delaware County's improving concussion management!
Bydalek Speaks at Bucks County, PA Concussion Education Conference
Headway's Addie Bydalek was a featured presenter at the Annual Bucks County School Concussion Conference this past January 29, 2018.

She presented in the hopes of influencing new strategies for administrators to implement when helping a student with concussion or PCS to succeed in the classroom.
