Can concussion/s in toddlers cause long term brain damage, like trouble with school and cognitive functions later in life? Where can I read more?

In brief: Depends on variables

A concussion significant enough to cause immediate loss of consciousness and hospitalization may result in long term issues.
However, the common head trauma from a stumbling toddler is unlikely to produce any later issues.
