    • Description:
      This handout describes common concussion symptoms your child may experience, and tips you can use to help with their recovery. Most children with a concussion, a type of traumatic brain injury, feel better within a couple of weeks. However, for some, symptoms will last for a month or longer. Concussion symptoms appear as part of the normal healing process and may change as your child gets back to his or her regular activities. If there are any symptoms that concern you, or are getting worse, be sure to seek medical care as soon as possible. Information in this handout is based on CDC’s Guideline on the Diagnosis and Management of Mild Traumatic Brain Injury Among Children. More information on the Guideline and concussion, as well as, tips to help your child feel better and steps you can take to help your child safely.
