PANDAS is short for Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Streptococcal Infections. A child may be diagnosed with PANDAS when Obsessive compulsive disorder and/or tic disorders suddenly appear following a strep infection (strep throat or scarlet fever); or the symptoms of OCD or tic symptoms suddenly become worse following a strep infection.

On Saturday March 16th from 6:30-9:30 pm a number of parents of PANDAS children are hosting the Calgary “Stolen Childhood Screening & Panel Discussion” at the Cardel Theatre.  Click here for more details!
