Event: Monthly Meeting: Brain Under Attack – Help For the Family

February 13, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Does your child have rages, OCD, tics, aggressive behavior, prolonged tantrums and/or anxiety?

Is your child exhibiting sudden behavioral changes or a developmental regression?

Your child may have PANS. PANS (Pediatric Acute-onset Neuropsychiatric Syndrome) is an umbrella term which includes diagnoses such as PANDAS, PITANDS, and Autoimmune Encephalitis — all of which describe a condition marked by concerning psychiatric and physical symptoms that often appear suddenly.

Children in the U.S. are being diagnosed with PANS at a very concerning rate.

What is behind this epidemic?

What makes a child vulnerable to these conditions?

Most importantly, what can be done to bring our kids back to good health?

Maria Rickert Hong, a co-author of Brain Under Attack: A Resource for Parents and Caregivers of Children with PANS, PANDAS and Autoimmune Encephalitis, will be answering questions about PANS/PANDAS, such as:

What PANS, PANDAS and Autoimmune Encephalitis are and why so many children are being diagnosed with these conditions.
What causes PANS.
Why PANS is so commonly seen in children with autism.
How PANS is treated.
How to get to the root cause(s) of PANS.
What parents of children with PANS have done to bring their children back to good health.
What leading PANS experts have to say about the cause and treatment of PANS.
