If I suspect my child has a concussion, what should I do?
Remove your child from play.
Ensure that your child is evaluated by a health care professional experienced in evaluating for concussions. Do not try to judge the seriousness of the injury yourself.
Keep your child out of play the day of the injury and until a health care professional, experience in evaluating concussions, says they are symptom-free and OK to return to play.
Tell all of your child’s coaches about any recent concussions. Coaches should know if your child has had a recent concussion in any sport. Your child’s coach may not know about a concussion your child received in another sport or activity unless you tell the coach.
