TACA Webinar: The Overlap Between PANS/PANDAS and Autism
Come join Gabriella True, ASPIRE President and TACA volunteer to learn more about PANS and Autism.
Wednesday, October 26th – 7:00 PM EDT/4:00 PM PDT
Children with autism spectrum disorder are at risk for the same medical conditions as
those without autism. Therefore, they are susceptible to developing Pediatric Acute-
onset Neuropsychiatric Syndrome (PANS) and Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric
Disorder Associated with Streptococcal infections (PANDAS). However, diagnosing
PANS and PANDAS can be more challenging in children who have autism because
of the overlapping clinical presentations. Gabriella True, TACA volunteer, and ASPIRE,
President will provide an overview of PANS PANDAS, the relationship between these
disorders, and a Question-and-Answer session. This meeting will be held in the TACA
Connect app. Please see your email for login instructions.
Registration will close shortly before the event. An email with the log in information will be sent to you on the day of the event
