Join New England PANS/PANDAS Association for a presentation on Understanding PANS/PANDAS. Our Board Members will discuss signs, symptoms and science behind PANS/PANDAS as well the tools for helping families and the community know more.
PANDAS (pediatric autoimmune neuropsychiatric disorder associated with streptococcus, or ‘strep’) and PANS (pediatric acute-onset neuropsychiatric syndrome) are rarely diagnosed neuropsychiatric conditions that affect children and their whole family unit. An affected child generally has a sudden, dramatic change in personality, displayed as obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), anxiety, tics or other abnormal movements, personality changes, decline in math and handwriting abilities, sensory sensitivities, restrictive eating and more.
