Our 45th Anniversary year is coming to an end and the Tourette Association of America has a lot to celebrate! Over the last year we have fostered new discoveries into the genetics behind Tourette Syndrome, we have raised awareness through national media including What Would You Do?, Inside Edition and the Today Show and we have provided support with the delivery of care packages containing comprehensive toolkits and other information to our chapters around the country. Additionally, we are proud to report that we received the Platinum Seal of Transparency from GuideStar, the world’s largest source of information on nonprofit organizations.
While we celebrate the holidays and new year, we know this time can be difficult for many people impacted by Tourette Syndrome and Tic Disorders. Marge Henning, TAA Education Advisory Board Member, recently discussed and shared some insight into how to manage sensory overload during the holidays on Facebook LIVE.
If you would like to learn more about this and other topics, we encourage you to register for our National Conference. The Newly Diagnosed Seminar on March 1st is perfect for those who have recently learned they are impacted by Tourette Syndrome or a Tic Disorder. March 2nd and March 3rd include a robust schedule of sessions and seminars all geared to educate individuals, families, physicians and practitioners with what they need to know to navigate Tourette Syndrome. We hope you will join us.
The Tourette Association remains steadfast in its commitment to providing hope and help for the Tourette and Tic Disorder community but we cannot do it alone. Give the gift that means the most. Give the gift of progress by supporting the Tourette Association today.
In closing, I would like to thank you all for your support of the organization. We are grateful for your generosity now and throughout the year. On behalf of the Board of Directors and the TAA staff, we wish you a joyous holiday season and a happy 2018.
