Presentation at Zucker Hillside Hospital

Dr. Budman, accompanied by Youth Ambassadors Aiden, Chris and Mary, presented to Psychiatry Residents at Northwell Zucker Hillside Hospital a lecture on Tourette Syndrome.


Otsuka Pharmaceutical Development & Commercialization, Inc., is conducting a pediatric Tourette’s Disorder research study. In this randomized, double-blind study, doctors will evaluate the long-term efficacy of a study drug in children and adolescents with Tourette’s Disorder.   


Attending school can be challenging in many ways for children with Tourette Syndrome and tic disorders. Building a positive partnership between home and school begins early and needs to be nurtured throughout the year.

Webinar presenters are education specialists Kathy Giordano and Wendy Wegman.

Check Out the New Superhero Comic Book Twitcha

There's a new superhero entering the comic book world and she's a teenage girl with Tourette Syndrome. Twitcha is the brainchild of NJCTS Youth Advocate Sarah Baldwin who illustrated and wrote the book with the help of her fellow NJCTS Tim Howard Leadership Academy participants LI TA Mary Gregorian of Smithtown, NY and Julie Nemerson of Northbrook, IL. Together the teens dreamed up a superhero that would be living with Tourette Syndrome and facing the same struggles that they were, both emotionally and physically.
