ts kids forum
Please join the Tourette Association of America's first ever virtual Children’s TS Forum for children ages 8-12 years old on Tuesday, May 19 at 7 pm EST. This group is designed to allow children to meet others with TS, while discussing relevant topics such as promoting Tourette Syndrome Awareness Month, managing stay-at-home restrictions, and keeping healthy and happy.
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.
Conference web 2
It has been nearly six weeks since we all began actively working to flatten the curve, and the TAA has been doing our part by staying home. These last few weeks have been a test on all of us mentally, physically and emotionally, but it has also taught us a lot about our community. Each of you in the Tourette Syndrome and Tic Disorder community embody strength and resilience every single day, pandemic or not. It has also allowed for some of the most productive, collaborative and creative times to develop new and exciting programs and information.
