Understanding the Educational Implications of PANDAS-PANS
Presented by Tami Childs, Ph.D., Educational Psychologist, MN Statewide Specialist for ASD and OHD
PANDAS and PANS are autoimmune encephalitic conditions that typically have an abrupt onset and are thought to impact 1 in 200 children. Students typically demonstrate anxiety, OCD, and/or tic symptoms including school or participation refusal. It is important for school personnel to recognize the early signs of these conditions as well as learn how to support these students in the school environment. This recorded webinar provides an introduction to PANDAS and PANS, the parent perspective, the current treatment guidelines, and specific educational strategies to increase student functioning.
