Abstract: The survival rate for children with brain cancer and tumours (CNS) has been going up in the last years. At the same time, different communicative, cognitive and psychological late-effects have been observed. These sequelae have a direct impact on the survivors’s academic performance, emotional state, social interaction, and the children’s quality of life in general. The objective of this paper is to focus on the communicative difficulties most commonly observed in children survivors of brain tumours treated at Virgen del Rocío Hospital in Seville (Spain): • Morphological • Lexical • Structural or syntactic • Pragmatic • Non-verbal Identifying the main communicative deficits will help us to develop appropriate recovery strategies and training programmes for school and social integration of children survivors.
