This paper investigates research literature on mild traumatic brain injury and supports for students, guardians, and the implications for educators. Students who experience mild traumatic brain injury will encounter a variety of symptoms (i.e., dizziness, amnesia, headache, sensitivity to sound) throughout their recovery. Students may also experience difficulties in their academic performance: occlusion errors, academic dysfunction, and deficits in long-term cognitive control. Medical staff, guardians, students, and educators must support students, on an individual basis, to serve the multiple needs of students recovering from mild traumatic brain injury.
