NJCTS is committed to delivering in-service trainings to education professionals and healthcare providers at schools throughout the state. We can provide a TS expert to train the faculty on managing TS symptoms in the classroom and offer a wide range of strategies and accommodations for the student(s) with TS that can lead to a positive impact on their academic success. Virtual presentations are currently being scheduled.
We can arrange for a Youth Advocate to speak to fellow students about TS through a powerful anti-bullying presentation promoting acceptance, tolerance, and self-advocacy. These presentations can be given in-person but will be virtual throughout the fall. There is no need to identify your child during the presentation.
Have a child off to college this fall? Our past NJCTS scholarship winners have provided us with great advice for incoming freshman. Check it out on our Teen Blog.
