Metro BIRSST

The Metro BIRSST is a program designed to provide services for people of all ages that have suffered a brain injury. The program is supported by grant funding. A Brain Injury is anything from a Concussion to Abusive Head Trauma (Shaken Baby). The legislature passed a law LB923 which pertains to a return to learn protocol for students who sustained a concussion. Area and state wide school districts are putting together BIRSST Teams to support these injuries as they occur as well as to monitor the students’ progress after sustaining a concussion. This website has been designed to offer information to help understand and support the severity of brain injuries and the lifelong affects they can cause.
