This webinar focuses on strategies for the classroom to assist a student with Tourette Syndrome. Strategies are suggested for both the student and teacher. These strategies and accommodations, while simple to implement, can make a resounding difference in the success, and happiness, of a student with Tourette. This webinar will be a played recording, however, Jennifer Stenger, PhD, the presenter of this webinar, will be on to answer questions in the chat and live at the end of the recording.
Note: Although this is a pre-recorded webinar, Jennifer Stenger will be live in the chat throughout to answer your questions, including during a post-presentation Q&A session.
