Caring for a child with PANS/PANDAS can be confusing, and frightening.

Some providers disagree about what causes PANS. Teachers and family members may have a difficult time understanding how a child’s behavioral symptoms can be caused by medical illness. This can leave your child and your family feeling isolated.

Parents and caregivers of children with PANS can use the 8 Steps to prioritize their own well being, and to create a supportive environment for their child and family. This will help to create a sense of balance and consistency – essential when you have to be both advocate and caregiver for a child with unpredictable behaviors.
