Happy Tourette Syndrome Awareness Month! It is my favorite time of year, with exciting programs and awareness initiatives for all. What I love most is our community coming together in monumental ways to lift each other up through stories, togetherness, and local communities lit up Teal in the name of Tourette Awareness. We recently shared a powerful video that showcases the realities of the condition as well as the physical and psychological impact. In collaboration with AIST Onlus Associazione Italiana Sindrome di Tourette, we discussed the heightened need for awareness on a global scale and how kindness, compassion and knowledge can go great lengths.

While the hustle and bustle of the day continues, the work the TAA is doing is for each of you. We are inspired by you. We are always learning from you. We are here for you, giving the support you need. The spring affords ample opportunities to get connected and involved from free or low-cost programs such as Virtual Conference, our Provider Webinar Series, Miles for Tourette and more. Next month will kick-off Tourette Syndrome Awareness Month and you can look forward to fun and engaging ways to join us in raising awareness.
back to school post pandemic
Across much of the United States, back-to-school time has come in the Spring instead of the Fall. Whether your children have been entirely at home or doing some form of hybrid education, many students are heading back to school full time. Transitions can be difficult for those with Tourette Syndrome, and this transition, in particular, presents some additional challenges.
