View our past webinars. 

Education and Medical Outreach

For more than a decade, NJCTS has developed and offered the Faculty In-Service Program, which is geared toward education professionals in elementary and secondary schools, while Youth Advocate Presentations reach tens of thousands of children and adolescents through activities that emphasize understanding, empathy, compassion, awareness, and growth. Medical Outreach is provided through Patient-Centered Medical Education, a unique presentation in which physicians and residents hear directly from youth and families, and Grand Rounds presentations in which an experienced medical clinician provides an overview of diagnosis and treatment options for TS and tic disorders. Learn more about our Education and Medical Outreach. 

Family Retreat Weekend

Since 2004, NJCTS has welcomed families to enjoy some time away from it all at the NJCTS Family Retreat Weekend, affectionately called “Camp FantasTIC.” The “best weekend of the year” allows children and their families to meet others with TS, learn more about their diagnosis, and engage with peers and mentors in a fun, safe environment. Would you like to join us for the next retreat? 

NJCTS Tim Howard Leadership Academy

Launched in 2014, the NJCTS Tim Howard Leadership Academy is a four-day intensive program that takes place on Busch Campus at Rutgers University. Participants work, play, eat, and sleep at Rutgers and enjoy a wide range of activities aimed at developing self-leadership, advocacy skills, and resilience in teens with TS and its associated disorders.

NJCTS Tourette Syndrome Practicum and Clinic at Rutgers

NJCTS, in collaboration with Rutgers University, presents the nation’s first university-based, stand-alone teaching practicum and clinic for the psychological evaluation and cognitive-behavioral treatment of TS. The program trains a new generation of professionals with interest and expertise in treating TS. The TS Clinic offers individual, family, and group therapy; cognitive-behavioral therapy; habit reversal therapy; social skills development sessions; referrals to physicians and testing services.

NJCTS would not be able to provide its myriad programs and services if not for its vibrant, dedicated volunteers! That’s YOU! We are always in need of teens, adults, and families to help spread the word, get some office work done, or help out at an event. If you would like to get involved and give back to an organization that has helped you, your family or friends, please take a moment to contact our office at info@njcts.org or 908-575-7350.

Grey Sky Films has produced a new series of videos to promote the impact NJCTS has had on families. Three families – the Straley’s, the Ordonez-Coronado’s, and the Delaney’s – sat down with us to discuss their journey with Tourette Syndrome and how they found NJ Center for Tourette Syndrome. From the family retreat and other special events to school presentations and advocacy training, NJCTS brings the TS community together and helps them navigate their social, educational, and medical challenges. As young Armani says, NJCTS is his “safe place.”
