What Happen With A Dyslexic Who Sustains A Concussion?

Dyslexics who sustain a concussion can occur under some following conditions. All the given below events all cause quick declaration of the head and shifting of delicate brain tissue inside the skull.

    1. The head strikes a stationary object. Common examples include a fall where the head hits the ground or an object, or hitting the head on an object during an accident.

    2. An object hits the head, such as a ball or stick during sports, or as a result of human collision.

    3. A quick acceleration or declaration of the head with no contact to any surface, this can occur in dancers and gymnasts due to rapid movement or during accident.

People who have a history of Dyslexia or Alzheimer’s disease in their family can be more at risk for having a worse response after a concussion. This is because some people have proteins in brain that already place them at risk of memory problems which can be really aggravated by concussion. This results in more cognitive difficulties with memory, concentration and motivation after experiencing a concussion.
