As many as 1 in 50 individuals show signs of Tourette Syndrome or other tic disorder – and most of them undiagnosed, misdiagnosed and/or misunderstood.
NJCTS provides answers for these individuals and their families through referrals to programs and services, education and training so that families, peers and professionals will be better qualified to help those with Tourette Syndrome, and support of research programs so that we can find better treatments and a cure.
Looking to help support NJCTS? Donations are always appreciated!
