Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Tourette Syndrome is a lifelong condition that affects all races, ethnicities, genders, and ages. We understand that intersectionality, which is the intersection of identities — gender, racial, ethnic, sexual, religious, disability, within the community creates added challenges that are real and pose a threat to equal access and care. In addition, we recognize and embrace the diverse makeup of our constituencies and acknowledge that in that order to fulfill our mission, we must better serve all populations affected by Tourette Syndrome and related Tic Disorders. Your voice matters – please continue raising awareness, sharing your stories, and making change.

Our goal is to ensure that everyone impacted receives equal access to programs, resources and support, as well as treatment and care regardless of age, race, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, religion or income.

To support this, we have established inclusion efforts listed below to better understand and deliver programs nationally and to ensure that our mission delivery reflects the diverse needs of the TS and Tic Disorder community.
