Hi, my name is Cheryl. My son nicholas was diagnosed with T-cell NHL stage 4 when he was 4 yrs old. He is fixng to be 8 next month and is in remission. Nicholas under went chemo and cranial radiation. They had dicussed with me that there might be some problems with learning and attention span as a long term effect of the radiation and/or chemo. He is in the second grade but struggling. He has problems in math and reading. And also has a serious problem focusing and keeping his attention on the matter at hand. I am wondering if anyone has any info on this or knows where I can read up on the long term effects, and what I can do about it. Thank you in advance for any advice.
