When Strep Causes OCD, Anxiety and More

The Dearborn Academy Speaker Series is hosting a panel discussion on the little-known but disabling PANS/PANDAS syndromes.  The diseases can occur when strep, other infections or environmental factors cause a misdirected immune response resulting in inflammation on a child’s brain. This response, in turn, can trigger the sudden onset of ADHD, OCD, disabling anxiety, a decline in math and reading skills, and more.

While researchers are only beginning to study and understand the PANS/PANDAS syndromes, the panel will provide the latest information on causes and treatment.
