New research finds student athletes who get a concussion might need some extra break time before they head back to class.
The American Academy of Pediatrics conducted a study and found after children get a concussion, they sometimes have problems learning new material and remembering what they've already learned.
Researchers recommend that children with serious symptoms stay home from school until they've been cleared by their doctor. Still, they say every concussion is different and they should be looked at on a case by case basis.
