What Do We Offer?

Our aim is to share information about Tourette Syndrome with the public, eliminating or minimalizing the social isolation of people with TS. Our objective is to improve quality of life of those with TS. We offer our members the following:

    a membership card

    a website with the latest information on TS including latest research

    a forum

    PR through TV, radio and press articles.

    brochures and other publications (including books) regarding TS

    cooperation with public authorities and other organisations

    annual General Meeting of the members attended also by doctors, psychologists and experts.

    A directory with contact details of other members of the Association

    a list of recommended doctors in the Region

    training sessions for the members and volunteers and meetings with parents

    support group

 

One of achievements of our Association is involving people to work voluntarily for the benefit of the organisation. With a help of our volunteers we want to support people suffering from tics and their families. Our plan for the nearest future is to continue our educational campaign,to organise series of events, such as family picnics or meetings. We have already established a support group and a forum. In our annual report we provide information about all our activities. If we are visible, the society will have to recognise that we exist – us, people with Tourette Syndrome.



Our Mission

The Association offers support to persons with Tourette Syndrome and their families. We create opportunities for them to meet up and interact. Our objective is also to share the awareness about the nature of Tourette Syndrome and indicate the opportunities for  therapy. 

 

In order to meet these objectives, the Association has embarked on educational campaign based on spreading the information and publications about TS. The Association collaborates with the specialists and relevant authorities in the fields of education, health and science research.

Tourette Syndrome

Tourette Syndrome is an inherited, neurological condition, its key features are tics, involuntary and uncontrollable sounds and movements.  The tics are usually of a mild nature, however in the more extreme condition they can manifest themselves in involuntary swearing or making obscene or otherwise unacceptable movements or gestures.

 

The disorder is named after Gilles de la Tourette, the  French neurologist and neuropsychiatrist, , who in 1885, whilst working  at the Pitié-Salpêtrière Hospital in Paris, described 9 cases of this condition.
