Understanding and Supporting Students With Posttreatment Lyme Disease Syndrome

This session is from the NASP 2022 Annual Convention

  • PMD: 4,6
  • Skill Level: Introduction

Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. explain PTLDS and why school psychologists should be aware of the disease
  2. identify the neuropsychological, social-emotional, and physical symptoms of PTLDS
  3. identify interventions and best practices to support students with PTLDS


Cases of posttreatment Lyme disease syndrome (PTLDS) are on the rise because of global environmental changes, yet education about the disease is lacking, particularly among school psychologists. Participants will learn the neuropsychological, social–emotional, and physical impact of PTLDS and its implications on educating and evaluating students with the disease.
