“Not all concussions are created equal”
Christina Kunec, PsyD
Just as no two people are exactly alike, no two injuries are exactly alike. Such is the case with concussion. Depending on an individual’s medical history, family history, how the injury occurred, age, gender, and resources to support recovery, myriad symptoms can occur. Symptoms may be physical, sleep-related, emotional, or even cognitive in nature and while certain individuals may experience only one type of symptoms, others may experience a wide variety. Different symptoms impact an individual uniquely, particularly when it comes to academic performance. Therefore, it is important to recognize the numerous symptoms that may occur as a result of a concussion as each may require unique academic accommodations and treatment to support a complete recovery.
