Today not only kicks off Tourette Syndrome Awareness Month, it is also the first day of our Virtual Conference 2020. There has never been a more important time to make the TAA your charity of choice. We have all experienced many changes over the last several weeks and now, more than ever, we need to come together to ensure the future of the only national organization dedicated to serving the Tourette Syndrome and Tic Disorder community.

vision board
Facilitated by both a clinical psychologist and a Tourette Association Youth Ambassador, join the free "Visualizing a Fantastic Future" presentation on Tuesday, May 12 at 7 pm EST. This presentation will provide youth participants the opportunity to learn more about making a vision board, and engage in a virtual “show and tell” of personal items that they might put on their own vision board. As such, we encourage you to bring an item to “virtually” share with the group that might be part of your vision in the making! Please register in advance for this live meeting.
navigating relationships
Despite an estimated 1 million Americans being impacted by Tourette Syndrome, nearly 50 percent are going undiagnosed. Tourette Syndrome can impact your or a loved one, but it can also impact a neighbor, friend, colleague or community member. Additionally, Tourette Syndrome is often misunderstood and those around you may have a difficult time understanding the obstacles faced on a daily basis with this diagnosis. Please join Dr. Katie Kompoliti and Eric McGowan for a free webinar on Friday, May 8 at 1 pm EST as they discuss the ways to educate friends, family and community members about Tourette Syndrome.
