International Autoimmune Encephalitis Society is renowned  for our educational memes on various subjects pertinent to autoimmune encephalitis.  By identifying the deficits a patient with AE has, we have created ‘IAES memes’ as a learning tool to support those learning challenges.  Using images, color and brief descriptions on various topics, the AE patient can utilize these ‘cue cards’, to build their knowledge base about AE.  Challenges with memory, processing and other deficits of executive functioning have all been taken into account and are supported so learning can occur with ease.  The individual may not recall the information contended in a specific meme at first, but will recall the color or image on the meme enabling them to locate and refer to that information without stress. Building knowledge though this educational tool, helps the individual become a strong self advocate and has proven to be a winning strategy in expedited learning.  Doctors, hospitals and AE Clinics around the world have praised and promoted IAES memes as a welcoming way for patients, caregivers, family and friends to learn and understand key educational points about autoimmune encephalitis.
