GETTING HELP

The good news is that help is available. While every child is different and treatment options vary, a growing number of physicians and researchers are turning their attention to PANDAS/PANS. Our hope is that access to medical providers willing to treat children within our community will become easier as awareness grows.

There are several great websites offering support on a variety of topics related to PANDAS/PANS. Members of this group and many within the greater PANDAS/PANS parent community have expressed a willingness to share their stories and provide support.
