This pilot clinical trial studies how well an iPad-based cognitive rehabilitation program works in improving quality of life in patients with grade II-III glioma. An iPad-based cognitive rehabilitation program may help to increase patients cognitive function and quality of life, and may provide doctors with valuable information for optimizing care of patients with brain tumors.
