Children with Concussions Face Problems with Schoolwork

The findings of a new study have revealed that kids and teens who are affected by concussions tend to worry about their academic skills in the week after their injury, and older kids who have more severe symptoms tend to worry the most.

A new toolkit known as HEADS UP to Schools, which was put forth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention revealed that kids affected by concussions may need to spend few hours at school and take more time for assignments and other schoolwork, since they tend to feel frustrated and are unable to keep up with the schoolwork following the injury.

For the study, the researchers surveyed 239 pairs of kids and their parents, and another group of 110 parents of kids who were treated at a concussion clinic within 28 days of their injury and returned to school.

They found that both kids and parents had concerns about academics post the injury.

Only 109 of the 349 students who were affected managed to recover completely from concussion and recorded no symptoms whatsoever.

What’s more, they also found that around 60 percent of the kids having symptoms, and 64 percent of their parents were either moderately or highly concerned about the injury affecting their schoolwork, learning or performance.

What’s more, this group included more of students in high school rather than those in middle or elementary school.

A lot of children noted symptoms such as headache which interfered with their schoolwork and they had problems paying attention, or just felt too tired.

What’s more, these children also noted difficulties in studying and taking class notes.

“The persistence of symptoms clearly is the most significant factor in academic impact,” the researchers said. “Anxiety, sleeplessness and moodiness are symptoms of concussion, but are strongly associated with adolescent behavior and any external stress.”

The researchers believe that the fact that high school results tend to have an impact on graduation and college is what could be the cause of concern for these kids.

“Concussions vary widely, generally speaking we want kids to get back into school as soon as they can tolerate it,” they added.

In most cases, 2-3 days of restful downtime could help the child recover better.

“School systems need to be prepared to accept and support these kids heading back into classrooms before full recovery,” they concluded.
