Full TitleNeuropsychological, Social, Emotional, and Behavioral Outcomes in Children with Cancer(COG-ALTE07C1)
Pediatric cancer and its treatment may cause problems with learning, thinking, and behavior (“neuropsychological problems”). Children may have difficulty remembering things, paying attention, planning ahead, and keeping up with their classmates at school.
The purpose of this Children’s Oncology Group study is to assess the neuropsychological, social, emotional, and behavioral functioning of children being treated for cancer. Participants will undergo neuropsychological evaluation at three points during and after cancer treatment: 9 months, 2.5 years, and 5 years after being diagnosed with cancer.
This study is open to English-speaking children (ages 3-21) with cancer who are participating in a Children’s Oncology Group therapeutic study.
