The Tourette Association of America is celebrating Black History Month by highlighting the diversity of the Tourette Syndrome and Tic Disorder community. To mark this celebration, the TAA is calling on members of the community to share stories and experiences.
Ideas could include highlighting the experiences of growing up with Tourette Syndrome and the challenges that you’ve had to overcome in school, in your local community and/or within your home life. You can also choose to select a quote from a notable African American figure, or mention a significant contribution made by an African American figure, that has impacted you and the way you handle your Tourette Syndrome.
You are welcome to express yourself in any form, including a story, a poem, a piece of art, a song, or a video.
Although Black History Month occurs every February, we feel it’s important to continuously highlight these important stories. You are welcome to submit your story year-round. Please fill out the form below for the opportunity to be featured on the TAA’s social channels and website.
