Bullying Prevention & Strategies
Many schools and communities have embraced new, effective strategies and implemented programs to prevent bullying. Nonetheless bullying persists across the country. Educating students about Tourette can be an important first step to prevent bullying. If a child’s fellow students are not properly educated about TS, the potential for bullying can increase, and the child is more likely to develop poor social skills, under-achieve academically and suffer from low self-esteem. When students understand TS, they generally become more comfortable with their classmate and are less likely to bully or to condone the bullying.
