Assessment and Rehabilitation of Cognitive Impairments in Pediatric Survivors of Cancer

neurobiologic impairments associated with chemotherapy treatments in children with cancer
and to assess the efficacy of a cognitive intervention program for improving cognitive
impairments in these children.

psychiatric, neurodevelopmental and/or learning disorders including attention deficit
