Concussion Comeback Plan ORTHO_130994_2017-05_Concussion Program Comeback B - Page 7

What if a student has had a concussion? Any student who has had a concussion should see a healthcare provider knowledgeable about concussions for an evaluation and care plan. Following the concussion, students may display a variety of symptoms that could make schoolwork more challenging. Still, most kids will recover completely within a few days to a few weeks. They don’t need an extended school absence and will only miss a day or two of school if any at all, even if they are not entirely back to normal. Symptoms may last longer for some. (See the 504 Plan information on page 16 if the student needs long-term support at school.) 7
