EDUCATIONAL PRESENTATIONS AT SUPPORT GROUPS/2015

Back to School often equals Back to STRESS for children with Tourette’s, their parents and their teachers.  Often symptoms of Tourette’s seem purposeful and “disobedient” to teachers and can be disruptive to others in the classroom.  Additionally, tics and associated disorders such as Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, and/or learning disabilities may keep a child from performing to full potential.

Sheryl Kadmon, Executive Director of the Tourette Syndrome Association of Texas, can help you and others understand this often baffling disorder and help you advocate successfully for your child in school.  Learn diagnostic criteria for T.S.; categories and phenomenology of tics; associated disorders, such as OCD and ADHD; pharmacologic and other interventions; educational and social implications of the syndrome; accommodations and modifications for the classroom; and how to help prepare your children and yourself for maximum success in life.

These free presentations are perfect for parents, adults with T.S., family, physicians, nurses, school personnel and teachers – anyone with an interest in learning about T.S.  Click on the Support Group Tab above for specific location/time details for each city.
