SPD and Concussion Recovery Time

by Brenda

My son was hit with a soccer ball during practice and suffered a moderate concussion. However, some of the symptoms seem to be lasting longer than they should (it's been about a month and a half now since the incident).

I have read that certain risk factors can prolong recovery and "this may include a history of migraines, depression, mood disorders, or anxiety, as well as developmental disorders such as learning disabilities and ADHD."

Does anyone know if having SPD can possibly prolong the recovery of a concussion, making it take more time than is typical?
