Return to Activity
For Children and Youth
Concussions are most common among children and adolescents, so there is a need for pediatricians, family physicians and schools to follow an appropriate return to school for each student with a concussion. For the best care of the student, it is important that the prescribed return to school plan is appropriately followed-up by the family, student and school together. For more information on appropriate return to activity for children, please look at section 4 of our Pediatric Concussion Guidelines.
Returning to regular activities, especially work can be difficult if concussion symptoms persist. Within the Guidelines for Concussion and Persistent Symptoms ONF has published a set of Return to Work Guidelines, to view the section module, click here.
