Long Island Center for Tourette, in collaboration with Long Island Tourette Association (LITA) has a team of trained individuals who provide free in-service for faculty, psychologists, social workers, staff and other school personnel that may interact with children who have Tourette. School personnel benefit immensely from the knowledge and valuable teaching methods they acquire through these presentations, coming away with skills and understanding that dramatically improve the academic and social environment of children with Tourette. Educational materials provided include brochures, CDs and DVDs.
The LI TA Education and Advocacy Committee is dedicated to improving the educational experiences for the student with TS and associated disorders by promoting enhanced awareness and presenting in-service workshops for school staff and faculties and consultations to school personnel and to parents. Additionally, the committee has been responding to parents’ requests for information and is helping parents to advocate for their children at IEP and other team meetings at schools.
