Students with Tourette Syndrome and co-occurring conditions such as ADHD, anxiety and OCD, may benefit from the use of assistive technology (AT) in school. Assistive technology can help students more effectively access learning and complete academic tasks on their own. AT accommodations can include an alternative communication system, digital books, noise reduction devices, speech to text recognition and many more alternatives. AT accommodations can support students with tics, executive function deficits, anxiety and more.

The TAA also offers in-service education for school professionals as well as peer presentations from our TAA Youth Ambassadors. Please reach out to [email protected] for more information.
