PANDAS is the sudden onset of obsessive-compulsive disorder or tics following streptococcal infection in a previously healthy child. We will discuss our qualitative phenomenology study of six families with a child with PANDAS whose symptoms developed prior to beginning school and consider how symptoms affected families. We will discuss implications of results for OT practitioners.
