Children Surviving Cancer: Psychosocial Adjustment, Quality of Life, and School Experiences.
Bessell, Ann G.
Exceptional Children, v67 n3 p345-59 Spr 2001
A study of 51 post-treatment survivors (ages 8-17) of cancer found they had difficulties in psychosocial adjustment in the areas of scholastic competence, emotional stability, and social competence. Students who repeated a grade were particularly concerned with academic performance and peer relationships. Homebound instruction was academically inadequate and socially isolating.
