Virtual Family Day at Mass General Hospital

Please join the Tourette Center of Excellence at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and the Tourette Association of America Massachusetts chapter on November 7th, 2020 from 8:00am to 1:30pm EST for a FREE virtual Family Day event!

The event is intended for individuals with Tourette Syndrome (TS) or tics and their families who are seeking virtual support and strategies to address the practical issues they may face. There will be presentations by MGH providers in neurology, psychiatry, psychology, and neuropsychology, and an educational advocate who works with schools and families.

Topics will include an overview of tics and Tourette Syndrome, their co-occurring conditions (including OCD, ADHD, anxiety/depression), treatment options including both medications and behavioral therapy, and special sessions on explosive anger, neuropsychological testing, and ways to advocate for yourself or your family member’s educational needs. After the talks, there will be an open Q&A session to facilitate dialogue between the Tourette Syndrome and tic disorders community and experts in the field.

*This event is best suited for Massachusetts residents but all are welcome to join!*
