This webinar is for teachers and educational professionals.
Current estimates suggest that 1 in 200 children have PANS or PANDAS which are treatable conditions if caught early, but 95% of GP’s are not aware of the conditions. The office of national statistics estimates 81,569 children from the age of 0-19 have Long Covid in the UK.
PANS PANDAS UK and Long Covid Kids strongly believe that schools have an important role in supporting these children. This short webinar will offer educators simple advice in recognising and managing those suffering with these conditions including supporting the children and families to achieve the most positive outcomes they can in school.
Dr Indra Barathan MBBS, DRCOG, DFFP, MRCGP, IFM will be offering an introduction into Pans and Pandas and how the strange and seemingly disparate symptoms may present in children.
Ms Tina Coope B Ed (Hons), MA Ed will be outlining why it is important that educators are aware of the symptoms of PANS and PANDAS and how we can best support these children in school.
Sammie McFarland founder of Long Covid Kids will be speaking about Long Covid in children how schools can ensure they provide a safe space for all pupils such as adequate ventilation to prevent airborne transmission and advice on identifying symptoms.
