Dearborn Academy Speaks is hosting a panel discussion on the little-known but disabling PANS/PANDAS syndromes. The diseases can occur when strep, other infection or environmental factors cause a misdirected immune response resulting in inflammation on a child’s brain. This response, in turn, can trigger the sudden onset of ADHD, OCD, disabling anxiety, a decline in math and reading skills, and more.
While researchers are only beginning to study and understand the PANS/PANDAS syndromes, this panel of experts will provide the latest information on causes and treatment.
May 17th 6:30 – 8:00 pm, via Zoom
