Southwestern Ontario P.A.N.D.A.S./P.A.N.S. Symposium


Do you know a child suffering from anxiety, obsessive compulsive symptoms, food restriction or motor/vocal tics?

Did you know that 1 in 200 children with the above symptoms as well as other symptoms like sleep/urinary difficulties, emotional lability, separation anxiety, ADHD, fine motor skill and academic decline are suffering from a misdirected immune response causing inflammation in their brain, also known as PANDAS/PANS?
