The diagnosis and treatment of childhood cancer disrupts typical social, cognitive, and educational development throughout childhood, adolescence and young adulthood. This can impact on a young person’s relationships with peers and engagement at school. A successful transition to school is important in promoting greater school attendance, academic performance, career achievements, and social relationships.
What does this study aim to achieve?
The Ready, Steady, School study aims to develop a school re-entry program for survivors of childhood cancer, their families and education professionals, to ensure the successful transition into school after cancer treatment. Our research aims to develop this program in consultation with survivors, families and education professionals, to ensure that the components and program resources are relevant and will be successful in promoting student engagement, social relationships and educational outcomes.
