The Role of the School Nurse for Students with Tourette Syndrome

Ellen Meyers, M.S., M.Ed, member of the Tourette Association Education Committee, talks about the role of the school nurse for students with Tourette, taken from the DVD, “Tourette Syndrome in the Classroom, School and Community” available from the Tourette Association. Ellen advises school nurses how they can help/problem solve when a student with Tourette comes to their office as well as how to help the student release stress and ways to avoid the stress around them.
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.
