Concussion can cause changes in emotion and functioning. Symptoms, whether resolving in a few days or persisting for months, can disrupt academic life, causing disengagement or poor performance. Lingering symptoms, impact on quality of life and academics, and coping strategies utilized by students in the management of concussion will be identified. The potential role of OT faculty as consultants to the Office of Disabilities for environmental adaptations to optimize engagement is discussed.
