Podcast Episode 11 Recording

PANDAS (Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Streptococcal Infections) is a condition in which high levels of strep antibodies can end up attacking the body’s cells and causing extreme, intense, acute-onset sensory issues, OCD-like symptoms and more. In this podcast, Amy and Evelyn discuss their 20+ years of experience with PANDAS in the context of their clinical work. They provide important insights for parents of children who are suffering, as well as for therapists who perform treatment protocols that could trigger physical or psychological responses in clients with PANDAS. 

Note: PANDAS is somewhat controversial in the medical field, since the research is very new and there aren’t established diagnostic or treatment protocols. The information in this podcast is presented in light of how we have encountered it as clinicians. For more information, see the National Institute of Mental Health’s overview of PANDAS.
