Chemo Brain

College disability support providers may not often serve a student who has had cancer or who is in the midst of cancer treatment and thus be uncertain how best to accommodate some of the needs the student identifies.

The American Cancer Society has useful resources at its site, including an informative section about the mental cloudiness cancer survivors experience, known as  “chemo brain”   Although somewhat lengthy,  the content can help disabilities service providers be more aware of what individuals who have had cancer or who are experiencing cancer may be coping with.
