Children experiencing neuro-immune disorders sometimes have cognitive difficulties, such as trouble paying attention and learning. We are on the lookout for any such difficulties. To identify problems, the neuropsychologist on our team can perform specialized testing. With your permission, our educational liaison can work with your child’s school to make changes that will help address the issues. These detailed assessments and recommendations can be hugely important in helping our patients succeed in school in the midst of their illness and treatment.
Our social worker can also help you find any resources you need, both at Boston Children’s and in your community.
