Students who sustain a concussion may develop several symptoms that interfere with returning to school. Clinicians, students, parents, and teachers should all be part of a transparent return-to-learn plan that helps individuals navigate their recovery process. Most individuals can return to school with an informal, individualized management plan in place, but more formal plans should be developed for students with prolonged difficulties. Plans for such students are protected through the American with Disabilities Education Act. Those who have difficulty returning to school following concussion should also be re-evaluated medically to rule out comorbid or emerging neuropsychiatric conditions.
