When to homeschool? PANS Lyme & Co

Recommended Posts

DD6 had a major meltdown in school today that landed her with an in school suspension and the response to the stimulus was way out of proportion. This is on DAY 3 of 1st Grade!!!  ...With LOTS of supports in place... I'm thinking that we may have to home school or hospital school or something. She's dealing with Lyme and Bartonella which I suspect was congenital but Idk.  We've been treating Lyme since mid-January and she herxed horribly.

Any thoughts?  Any advice?

After a long history of homeschooling (not because of PANDAS/PANS, but continued when PANS hit), we tried school 2 years ago.  It started getting more difficult after just a few weeks, and after a couple of months, we couldn't see how all the stress of getting out the door, being late every day, could add up to positive overall.  It was much easier to keep him home.  Khan Academy has a very good online program, and its free.  We let him gravitate towards what he was interested in.

We are trying school out of the house again this year (Grade 8) because he is doing much better than last year and the year before.  If it gets as bad as before, we will simply yank him back to homeschool.  Though it may seem daunting for a parent, if a parent is available, it is so much less stressful all around if the child's symptoms are severe.
