When an athletes head makes contact with an opponent, a ball, the ground, or something else, it can result in a concussion.

Symptoms of a concussion include headaches, dizziness, sensitivity to light or sound, memory problems, and difficulty with concentration. For now, its still unclear exactly which forces contribute to concussions or how much force is necessary to cause one.As scientists continue to unravel the mysteries behind the causes and effects of concussions, youth-sports teams, organizations, and officials have begun to respond. Since 2009, nearly every U.S. state has passed some form of a youth-concussion law.

A number of youth-sports organizations have likewise changed the rules to reduce the likelihood of head-to-head contact and other head injuries.In Playing It Safe: Reducing Concussions and Head Injuries in School Sports, Education Week contributing writer Bryan Toporek offers a glimpse into the evolving world of youth-sports concussions. This e-book contains some of the most relevant research for student-athletes, along with information about how youth-sports organizations have begun to adopt concussion policies accordingly. This e-book also features a host of youth-concussion resources accessible on the Web and at edweek.org.

The Education Week interactive map resource, found at the back of this book, provides a current snapshot on youth-concussion laws in every state.
