Educational Outreach Program for Schools

The prevalence of Tourette Syndrome (TS) is approximately 1% of the student population, indicating that it is highly likely someone in your school will have the disorder. To complicate matters, most students with the diagnosis of TS also have co-occurring disorders such as ADHD and OCD. 

We provide customized presentations for:

  • Grade specific issues. 
  • Teacher, parent, and student specific presentations.
  • Information on Tourette Syndrome (TS) and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD).
  • Information of what TS and OCD look like in the classroom.
  • Strategies for the classroom.
  • Short films to illustrate TS and OCD.
  • Empathy exercises to help people of all ages understand what it feels like to live with TS and OCD.

All the presentations have been vetted by a team of neurologists, psychologists, and teachers to come up with the most current information available - and they range in length from 30 minutes to 2 or 3 hours.
