Founded in 1972, the Tourette Association of America is dedicated to making life better for all individuals affected by Tourette Syndrome and Tic Disorders. The only nationwide organization serving this community, the Association works to raise awareness, fund research, and provide on-going support. The TAA directs a network of 31 Chapters, 83 Support Groups and reconizes 18 Centers of Excellence across the US.
In cooperation with the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the TAA has created a library of comprehensive materials in a variety of languages about TS and Tic Disorders. These guides are free for the community and many are included here in our virtual exhibit booth.
In additon to these resources, the TAA provides no-cost medical education presentations on the diagnosis and treatment of TS and other Tic Disorders for medical providers across the country. Please contact Angela Sullivan, firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on how to set one up at your institution!
