Tourette’s Syndrome Awareness Month

Today – May 15 – marks the first day of TS Awareness Month (May 15-June 15).

Here’s a link with more information.

Since my son has TS, I try to stay informed and pass along information when I can get it.

The link is on the Tourette’s Syndrome Association website. TSA has a great newsletter for kids called “That Darn Tic.”

My son – K-Oz – enjoys reading it every time it comes in the mail. It’s full of stories, drawings and poems writte by kids with TS. For K-Oz, I think it’s good for him to read about other kids and how they feel about and deal with their TS.

For me as a parent, I enjoy the resources offered by TSA – and the support. It’s always nice to know I’m not alone.
