What happens during an evaluation?
The evaluation is conducted by a pediatric sports medicine specialist and includes a comprehensive review of the athlete’s injury and symptoms, a thorough physical and neurological examination, an assessment of functional balance, and an assessment of neuropsychological and cognitive functioning using IMPACT , a computer-based testing technique (if necessary). Results of the evaluation are reviewed with the athlete and family. A treatment plan is provided, including management of symptoms and a timeline for return to sports and activities. Consultation with a neuropsychologist or pediatric neurologist is available to assist with management of prolonged cognitive and emotional difficulties.
