Classroom Strategies and Techniques for Students with Tourette Syndrome
Managing Tourette Syndrome or a Tic Disorder in the classroom requires knowledge and understanding. These are the key elements to creating an accepting and supportive educational environment. When school personnel have information about Tourette Syndrome (TS), students have greater opportunities for success. This resource, while not all-inclusive, provides strategies that will help you develop compassionate and effective supports.
Mutual respect, communication and trust will facilitate effective strategies and techniques, as well as play a positive role in the student’s learning. REMEMBER that students with TS do not want to be out of control and may have difficulty using appropriate strategies “in the moment.”
