Matthew Hocking Research Program

Ongoing Research

Identifying areas of social difficulty in pediatric brain tumor survivors and comparing them to data collected on children with autism spectrum disorder.

Children who have been treated for brain tumors can face significant social challenges post treatment.

Researchers are analyzing the acceptability, feasibility, and validity of tools used for psychosocial assessment or screening at various time points across the course of treatment to help predict and improve outcomes for children with cancer and their families.
