Baseline testing should be given by a health professional.  You may find a health professional certified in this testing at a children’s hospital or a doctor’s or trainer’s office.  The post-injury test, evaluation and return-to-play approval should also be given by a health professional.

One baseline test that comes recommended is SCAT3 (Sports Concussion Assessment Tool).  This test doesn’t need a computer and takes 10-15 minutes.  It should be administered by health-care professionals.  Coaches should ask if the trainer giving the test or evaluating a post-injury test is certified in SCAT.
