** Currently, we are conducting clinical research that focuses on individuals who've experienced a recovery from PANS' symptomatology for at least three years, and who are now between the ages of 21 and 31.
If you would be willing to participate in this study, we would be grateful to hear from you! Your perceptions and critical feedback are so important to expand our knowledge base of PANS, and will be included as a chapter in the second edition of the book below.
Of course, your anonymity will be assured.

In an effort to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, our office is presently closed for all in-person appointments. However, telephone and virtual appointments are still available.
What Should Families Expect from Schools at This Time? Below are a few highlights to consider:
* In general, federal law states that special education services should be provided to the same extent that regular education services are provided.
*Distance Learning (involving virtual teaching platforms, workbooks, phone calls, and other non in-person communications, are all ways to continue education during school closures. *Distance learning is also appropriate for any student with a disabling condition or illness that warrants a physical absence from school.
*Compensatory education may be appropriate for students once they resume their education, to help them 'catch-up'.
*Educational meetings (such as IEP's, Individualized Family Service Plans (IFSPs) Addendum meetings, Transition Plans, etc.) should continue according to stated time lines. However, they may be held virtually or by telephone, for example, when needed.
Kindly see the following handouts for additional information. Be sure to also consult with your own state's Department of Education, and of course, parent groups and disability rights groups in your area to obtain more information.
