Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

This research describes occupational-performance limitations experienced by postsecondary students following concussion. Students reported occupational-performance limitations in education, vocation, and social activities. All students reported performance limitations; no statistically significant differences were found between student athletes and nonathletes. The results indicate that there is a role for OT in postconcussion care to address occupational-performance limitations.
