This descriptive study examined OT referrals in an interdisciplinary concussion clinic. Data analyzed show that patients referred to OT presented to clinic evaluation further out from injury; had missed more days from school, work, and physical activity; were lacking a routine; and were not socially active. These results provide variables that indicate the need for OT assessment, guide clinicians in the referral process, and advance the role of OT in concussion management.
