Persistent Symptoms Services
Holland Bloorview has the largest multidisciplinary pediatric persistent symptoms clinic in Ontario. We offer clinical consultation services for children and youth with persistent concussion symptoms. If symptoms persist for 4 weeks, and your child is unable to return to full workload at school or unable to return to sports, a physician may refer them to our concussion services for consultation. Please have your doctor complete our physician referral form. All of these services are covered by OHIP, and may include:
- Medical follow up with a physician who is an expert brain injury
- Occupational therapy
- Social work
Services are individualized and depend on you and your child’s goals and priorities.
Note: We also offer early care services (less than 4 weeks) for youth enrolled in our baseline testing program. This program offers physician-led follow up care to mange your child's concussion.
