Report concussions and kids in The Chat Board Posted April 13 DS7 (turns 8 tomorrow!) sustained a concussion on Friday (along with a nasty gash on his forehead and several fractures to his frontal sinus bone) in an abrupt meeting between bicycling boy and tree. This happened right after lunch, and the rest of the day his speech and thought processes seemed very sluggish; he answered every question and had no problems with memory, it just took him longer to form his thoughts and to speak them. The next morning (Saturday), his language and processing speed seem to be back to normal. He was initially a little unsteady on his feet, but that seems to have resolved (we are still going up/down the stairs with him, just in case). He read two pages in his book before bed last night, (Sunday) which is much less than his normal amount of bedtime reading, and went to bed a bit earlier than usual. As of this morning (Monday), he's no longer complaining of a headache, and he doesn't seem to be having any issues with bright lights. I've eliminated all assigned reading/writing lessons this week, and promised him read-alouds and one science/history documentary every day that he feels up to it. It is going to rain today and tomorrow, so that helps with staying inside and resting. We always have had a quiet time after lunch, where he can read and/or listen to audiobooks in his room, and will make sure he continues to get that time away from his brothers so he can rest his brain. If you have had a child who has had a concussion, what are other signs that I should be looking for? We were told that he could seem fine and then have symptoms again, possible off-and-on for up to eight weeks. What else should I do to help him heal that I might have missed?
