Addressing School-related Impairments in Students with Tics and Tourette Disorder

Join the Tourette Association of America, the NYU Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and the Centers for Disease Control Tourette Health and Education Program for a workshop addressing school-related impairments in students with tics and Tourette Syndrome on Thursday, May 14 at 6 pm.

This workshop aims to provide an overview of tics and Tourette Disorder for teachers and other school personnel, as well as instruction in facilitating earlier identification of Tourette Disorder and related conditions that contribute to academic difficulties, such as Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). 

A panel of experts will discuss the relationship between Tourette Disorder, ADHD, and Executive Dysfunction, highlighting related school impairments, such as organizational deficits. Participants will learn best practices for addressing these issues, including school consultation, behavior modification, and a hands-on and practical approach to addressing issues with organization, time management, and planning.
