Dear Parent/Guardian, As a member of the Limelight Cheerleading Allstars, your child will be participating in mandatory concussion baseline testing provided by Lifemark. The results of this baseline testing can be used as a pre-injury comparison should your athlete suffer a concussion during the course of their season. Your athlete will be taken through a multi-modal concussion baseline testing protocol including a vision system screen, balance test and a computerized neurocognitive test administered using a software tool called ImPACT. The ImPACT test is a simple, non-invasive test that is set up in a ‘video-game’ type format. It measures information such as memory, reaction time, speed and concentration. The ImPACT test asks questions about your child’s health history and is not an IQ test.
Testing for your group will be completed on June 3, 2017 in 1 hour and 15 minute blocks from 9 am through to 2:30 pm. All testing will be administered at the following address: Lifemark-Pine Valley 4500 Highway 7 Suite# 100 Woodbridge ON, L4L 4Y7 For participants age 5 – 11 years a parent or guardian will need to be present to assist with the computerized neurocognitive screening portion of testing. You are required to book your child’s baseline test through our online portal.
Registration is available at: https://healthfairs.lifemark.ca/. Event ID: Concussion2017 (not case sensitive). Please select the appropriate testing block based on your child’s age at the time of testing. Two options are available – 11 years and under or 12 years and over. Throughout the season, should your child require physiotherapy services for any type of injury – concussion or physical in nature, Lifemark Pine Valley can help with both privately and OHIP funded services.
