Contact the Tourette Syndrome Association of Ohio for a packet on education or to set up an in-service for the educators at your child's school.

The inservice is great and really helps teachers and kids understand the symptoms of TS. This is especially useful when kids are teasing.

Each summer, the Tourette Syndrome Association of Ohio sponsors a weekend camp with lots of fun activities.

This is a great opportunity for kids to meet other kids with the same symptoms. This builds acceptance and self-esteem. Contact TSA Ohio for more information.
