Education and Motivation Assistance
The disruption of treatment can have a significant impact on a patient’s academic success and transition back to the classroom/education system. Tutoring services can help develop self-esteem in learners of all ages and restore the hope of returning to a more typical lifestyle.
Educational Testing/Neuropsychological Testing
The neurological and cognitive impact of those who have received chemotherapy greatly varies from person to person. Mild to severe impacts on learning have been observed. Educational and Neuropsychological testing can help students, families, educators and medical teams better navigate their learning needs and inform ways of coping, modifying and developing strategies to be successful in processing information.
