About PA Tourette Syndrome Alliance
Tourette Syndrome--Is so much more than just tics! Most people have an idea of what that diagnosis means, but they might not understand how often those diagnosed feel misunderstood. This neurological condition causes a person to have movements and vocalizations that are out of their control. These symptoms are ever changing and make things like reading or walking difficult to do. Because of their movements and vocalizations, they often need to explain their actions even to complete strangers.
The PA Tourette Syndrome Alliance offers support and information to family members; training for Educators and Peers; disability advocacy services to set up helpful accommodations so individuals with TS can succeed in their education; and an Annual TS Family Camp and TS Family Retreat to bring children and families from across Pennsylvania together for support and information.
