Video Helps Kids and Parents Understand Concussions

From falling off a bike to getting tackled in a football game, the ways a kid can get a concussion – or mild traumatic brain injury – are endless and the consequences can be life changing.

Dr. Mike Evans, Associate Professor of Family Medicine and Public Health at the University of Toronto, created a video to help kids and parents understand the injury.  Concussions 101, a Primer for Kids and Parents is easy to understand and speaks directly to children who have had a concussion about what happened to their brain, what symptoms to expect and how to safely return to activity and play.
