Pediatric Acute Neuropsychiatric Symptom Scale ~ Parent Version
If you have a child with PANS or PANDAS, have you wondered where your child’s symptoms fall on a scale of intensity compared to others?
Is the impairment considered minimal, moderate, severe—or somewhere in between?
A scale for parents to rate the severity of obsessive compulsive symptoms and 11 associated neuropsychiatric symptoms (i.e., anxiety, moodiness, sleep disturbance) is available for use. Click here to view and print the scale (there is one blank page).
The scale is based on the clinical experience of doctors Susan Swedo, Miroslav Kovacevic, Beth Latimer, and James Leckman, with the help of parents Diana Pohlman, Keith Moore, and others.
