What People Are Saying
"I’ve had so many questions about this confusing condition. This book really helped me sort them out. I still have lots to learn, but am feeling much more grounded as I head to the doctor with my daughter."
“When my son started to show symptoms of OCD and tics, and refused to go to school, I got no answers from our pediatrician. I printed out parts of your book to share with a different doctor who says he will work with me until we find answers.”
"I was totally new to PANDAS and felt so alone, but this book made me feel like I had a friend helping me find my way. We seem to be a community of parents searching for help together."
