Our journey with Pediatric Acute-Onset Neuropsychiatric Syndrome (PANS) started on May 2, 2014. My healthy 9-year-old son, Howie, came home with a sudden head-jerking movement. I asked what was wrong and he said he didn’t know.
The world seems to have moved beyond laughing out loud at individuals who live with developmental disabilities or autism...I am anxious for the day that Tourettes will no longer be fair game for comedy. <3
