NJCTS Youth Advocates Tess and Paige Kowalski have been on a roll lately. In addition to their presentation at Hamilton Primary School they also presented to the 6th grade class at Temple Emanu-El in Westfield, NJ this week. They educated approximately 50 students and 2 instructors about Tourette Syndrome and the associated disorders and shared their TS stories. Brava, ladies!
