Concussion Services

I was a sophomore at UW Madison when I worked with UW Speech and Hearing’s Concussion Clinic. I received a concussion in the middle of the semester and was considering a medical withdrawal because of the severity of my concussion and how it impacted my schoolwork. I met with Kim Caul and her team, and they gave me a bunch of different resources, recommendations, and symptom management techniques to try to help improve not only my day-to-day symptoms, but the issues I was having in school as well. I had a follow-up appointment two weeks later, and in that time, I was able to reduce all concussion symptoms by over 75% thanks to their help. If it was not for the clinic and their services, I would not have been able to finish off the semester as a full-time student.
