Robert Doss, PsyD, a clinical neuropsychologist at Children's Minnesota, discusses concussions and traumatic brain injuries; kids in sports; the upcoming film "Concussion"; and how a parent can advocate for a child if a concussion is suspected.

Chronic illness and teenagers

For teens with a chronic illness or disability, adolescence is a combination of a special developmental period and a difficult set of challenges. Adolescence is a unique developmental time characterized by emerging independence, rapid cognitive and physical growth, and the development of an identity. Peer relationships develop a special significance during adolescence. Chronic illness and disability impose physical limitations, often require repeat medical visits, and can involve complex medical treatments.
