PANS and PANDAS raised with Scottish Education Think-Tank

On the 26th October, the Commission on School Reform, part of Reform Scotland, which is an independent Scottish think-tank, published a report titled ‘Absent Minds: Attendance and Absence in Scotland’s Schools’. There was significant media interest in the report, which also advertised a webinar that day to discuss the issue. 


Gillian Mathewson, a parent with a child with suspected PANS or PANDAS and now PANS PANDAS Scottish Education Representative attended the webinar, and took the opportunity to ask the panel if they were aware of PANS or PANDAS and the impact that it can have on children’s attendance at school. They were not. 


Following the webinar, Gillian was invited to write a blog for the Reform Scotland website, to share information about PANS and PANDAS, and their impact on education. We are excited to share that this blog has now been published.
