Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and Tourette Syndrome in the Classroom

Ellen Meyers, M.S., M.Ed., Tourette Association Education Committee Member talks about how ADHD impacts a significant number of students with Tourette Syndrome and how it can have a major impact on a child’s academic performance. Strategies are discussed to assist students with this common related disorder in this clip taken from the DVD, “Tourette Syndrome in the Classroom, School and Community,” available through the Tourette Association.

Funding for this DVD, “Tourette Syndrome in the Classroom, School and Community” was made possible by the cooperative agreement award number 1U38DD000727-01 from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the presentation was generously supported by the Quantum Foundation, Palm Beach County, FL.
