A Parent's Guide to Concussions

At Nationwide Children’s Hospital Sports Medicine, we want you to be aware of the complex nature of concussions and how to keep young athletes safe. And, since safety begins with education, we developed A Parent's Guide to Concussions to help get an injured student-athlete back to what they love doing most. This free guide will help you:

  • Identify what a concussion is
  • Help keep your child from getting a concussion
  • Recognize if your child has sustained a concussion
  • Learn what to do if your child sustains a concussion
