Who can join the study?

This study might be a good fit for you and your child if:

  • Your child is between 11 to 18 years old.
  • Your child has had a sports-related concussion and is still having symptoms 4 weeks or more after injury.

What will happen if my child takes part in this study?

If you and your child decide to take part in the study, you would:
