What You Need to Prepare for a New School Year

PANS PANDAS impacts the physical health of a student and causes psychological, neurological, behavioral, and developmental difficulties.

At the start of a school year, parents of students with PANS PANDAS should schedule a time to meet with their child’s new team, including teachers, therapists, guidance counselors, etc. If the student has a 504 Plan or an Individualized Education Plan (IEP), the Case Manager/ Coordinator and other relevant school personnel will attend the meeting. In addition, if it is appropriate, the student may participate in the meeting.

Be prepared to share the following information: 
Invite school staff to contact ASPIRE for a Virtual School In-Service Lecture program.
  • The school’s multidisciplinary team benefits from an awareness of PANS PANDAS, the resulting impact on school performance, and the recommended support. 
  • Contact ASPIRE to schedule a virtual in-service on PANS PANDAS. 
Make sure you understand the difference between a 504 and IEP and the process!
