‘What is abundantly clear, however, is that those children/young people who are suffering now cannot wait. Their childhood and education matters too.’
We are delighted that EdpsychEd have recently published this article on PANS and PANDAS and have distributed it amongst their extensive professional networks of schools and educational psychologists.
Whilst the medical world of PANS and PANDAS continues to advance, shaping guidelines, identifying incidence figures, and developing clinical pathways, children and young people with these conditions are currently sitting in classrooms with their symptoms underestimated and/or misinterpreted with (in many cases) devastating consequences.
We very much welcome this professional collaboration and look forward to developing further streams of work in this area. Please share across your networks and with any relevant professionals.
