Pediatric Concussion Program

Whether it’s in the midst of athletic competition or on the playground, concussions sometimes occur. When they do, Goryeb Children’s Hospital’s Concussion Program can evaluate pediatric concussions and mild traumatic brain injuries, and determine an appropriate time to safely resume school or physical activities.

We use Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing (ImPACT™), which measures several aspects of brain activity, including memory, reaction time, attention span and processing speed. A baseline test is often done when the patient is healthy, so that if he or she suffers a concussion, we have a reference point to determine the severity of the injury.

Children who have a concussion will be encouraged to rest and limit both mental and physical exertion. The length of rehabilitation depends on the severity of the concussion, but most patients make a complete recovery.
