As medical science has become increasingly refined and effective, greater numbers of children and adolescents are surviving diseases that previously carried a more guarded prognosis. Yet chronically ill young people face a multitude of adjustment challenges, including academic difficulties and peer and family issues. Filling a crucial void in pediatric psychology, this volume assembles the latest knowledge about the impact of major diseases on learning and behavior, examines cognitive toxicities associated with current pharmacotherapies and medical procedures, and presents strategies for successfully reintegrating chronically ill students into the classroom.
