Every day students from elementary school to college are sustaining concussions during sport or playground activities. A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury that can affect the student’s cognitive, physical emotional and sleep functions. Recent research has shown that knowledge of a concussion’s potential effects on a student and appropriate management of the return-to-school process is critical for helping students recover from a concussion.
