Mild traumatic brain injury (TBI) in children is generally associated with excellent long-term outcome. In rare cases sequelae persist indefinitely. More commonly, cognitive and behavioral symptoms persist for a few days to a few weeks, possibly resulting in academic and social failure that could generate consequences that outlive the neurological sequelae. This article presents a mild TBI hospital-to-school protocol that uses real academic and social tasks and contexts as the screening procedure and creates a system of temporary accommodations in the event of persisting cognitive or behavioral consequences of the injury.
