KEYS to Succeed: Cognitive and Academic Intervention Program for Children and Adolescents Surviving Cancer
The study will examine whether school liaison services and home-based parental tutoring can
help with academic difficulties of paediatric brain tumour survivors who received cranial
spinal radiation and have returned to school. Forty-five patients will participate in the
project. All patients will receive psychology liaison services to link resources at the
hospital with those in the community. Patients will participate in one of two tutoring
programs designed to directly or indirectly improve math skills over 12 weeks. Weekly phone
calls will be used to support parents using the program. Patients will be tested before,
immediately after, and six months following each tutoring program to assess growth in
mathematics and working memory abilities.
