Thriving in School After Treatment

A child who was treated for tumors of the brain or central nervous system or who has neurofibromatosis, or any child who has had neuro-surgery, received cranial or focal radiation therapy or received intrathecal chemotherapy treatment could be at risk for or suffering from neurocognitive effects from their disease or treatment. This can be especially challenging when it's time to return to school after treatment, or when the demands of school change as the child gets older. In this webinar CHOP experts discuss neuropsychological evaluation, the legal rights of students, and how to support your child as he returns to learning.
