Remove your child from activity immediately

Keep your child out of play the day of injury and until they are returned to return to their activity by a healthcare provider who is trained in the assessment and management of concussion care.

Seek Medical Attention Right Away

Keep your Child Home From School and Out of Activities

Concussions need time to heal. Allowing your child to participate in schoolwork, and other activities that stress their brain (watching television, playing videogames, using the computer, texting, etc) can make their symptoms worse, and may actually make their condition worse and delay healing.

Your healthcare provider will determine when it is appropriate for your child to return to school and other activities
