Concussions: How Speech-Language Pathologists Can Help

Concussions are a common injury, especially in children and adolescents. They can result from many different situations, including sports injuries, car accidents, and falls. Although many concussion symptoms resolve without intervention, some children may experience persisting challenges. These challenges often become apparent when students return to school and increasing academic demands place stress on their cognitive load. In fact, it is estimated that 145,000 children and adolescents in the United States are living with lasting cognitive, physical, or behavioral effects that can impact them at school and into adulthood.
