Students with Concussions May Need More Recovery Time

- ATLANTA -- Student athletes who get a concussion may need a break before returning to the classroom.

Therefore, the American Academy of Pediatrics is now recommending children with severe symptoms stay home from school until they are cleared by their doctor.
