Background & Aim: The primary aim of this project is to develop a brief individualized, simple, assessment and intervention plan for young people who are suffering from the neuropsychological late effects of a brain tumor. In addition, the second aim of this study is to explore the feasibility and use of Cogmed for these children in a school setting, a brief cognitive remediation program aiming to improve working memory and attentional problems in this population.

Population & Sample Size: N = 6 children with history of brain tumor, ages 6 – 11 years

Design: Feasibility, Single Case Design, test-retest
