My 9 year old son was recently diagnosed with PANDAS, though looking back I suspect he has had it for years. After countless hours of reading, I feel as though I could have written most of what I've read without having a name/title to put with it. He is currently being treated for a strep infection. Trying to get him to go to school this week is like being in battle I can't win. He has already missed tons of school. How do I explain to the school why he isn't coming? Has anyone else had problems of their child flat out refusing to go to school? I'm only a week into this and it is frustrating.
