Online Support Groups
In cooperation with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Tourette Association of America is pleased to offer a series of online support groups. These support groups are available for people who may be located in underserved areas with limited access to resources and support. Each support group will meet once a month from November 2019 to August 2020 for approximately 90 minutes. We currently have three support groups, 2 parent groups and 1 group for young adults ages 18-25. You may only participate in either parent group 1 or parent group 2, not both. In order to participate, the only equipment you will need is an internet connection on a computer, iPad/tablet or similar device, and a working microphone. A web cam is not necessary; however, you will be able to see the moderator and are invited to join the meeting using your web cam.
To apply for either parent group 1, parent group 2, or for the young adult support group, please click here to fill out a form.
PLEASE NOTE: Space for these support groups is extremely limited and registration is on a first come, first serve basis. Due to the limited space, please only register to join if you intend to be fully involved and participate in all of the group sessions.
COMING SOON: The TAA is proud to announce we will be hosting an online support group for Spanish speaking parents of children with Tourette Syndrome. Dates and times will be announced soon. If you are interested in learning more, please contact Angela Sullivan, TAA Medical Project Specialist.
