Childhood brain tumour survivors (CBTS) can experience negative changes after having returned to school, including learning and psychosocial difficulties. Such consequences may disrupt their academic and personal development, leading to diverse disadvantages compared to peers. A close monitoring by those involved in the child’s education – i.e. parents, school staff and healthcare providers – is crucial for remediation of problems in an early stage. In Belgium, little is known about how CBTS and their environment experience the reintegration into school. In addition, uniform guidelines on follow-up after the school re-entry for stakeholders in education and healthcare are lacking.
