Mom uses own experience to weigh in on concussion bill

February 23, 2016

NORWALK, CT (WFSB) - Lawmakers are debating a concussion bill that was created to help make children safer and parents smarter.

When Katharine Snedaker watches children take part in athletic activities, she said she sometimes thinks about her son who suffered a head injury during recess.

“He was out of school for three and a half months and then continued to concuss a number of times over the next 13 months, and I couldn't get my son healed,” Snedaker said.

That struggle led Snedaker to start a brain injury non-profit and help Norwalk pass a law that requires parents to receive concussion education before enrolling their children in any sports league that uses public fields.
