Welcome to the Holland Bloorview Concussion Centre

The Holland Bloorview Concussion Centre is one of the first in the world dedicated exclusively to pediatric concussion. Youth brains are still developing and require a unique approach to concussion care. Our centre includes clinicians specifically trained in pediatric brain injury and researchers who are leading experts in the field of youth concussion.

We see the benefits of youth playing sports and how it positively affects their physical, mental and social development. The Concussion Centre is focused on getting kids back to doing what they love after sustaining a concussion, including recreational and competitive sports.

The Concussion Centre focuses on three key pillars: Education, Research and Clinical  services. It is the interaction between these pillars that makes the Holland Bloorview Concussion Centre unique. We are constantly evaluating our education initiatives and clinical services to ensure that your child is getting the latest and most evidence based program available. 

Our Objectives:

  • Better understand pediatric concussion 
  • Determine the best way to help children, youth and families manage their concussion 
  • Get the right information to the right people at the right time (healthcare professionals, parents, teachers, coaches, youth)
  • Help children and youth return to the activities they need, want and love to do.
