On March 31, the NJ Center for Tourette Syndrome & Associated Disorders (NJCTS) had a table for the Awareness Fair at Alan B. Shepard Elementary School in Old Bridge. Coordinated by School Counselor Jean Czarkowski, the fair was attended by more than 250 kids and teachers in grade K-5. They took turns rotating through the gym to see different exhibits/vendors and learn about different “abilities.”
I had the privilege of manning the NJCTS table at the fair, along with NJCTS Youth Advocates Ally Abad and Tommy Licato. The kids asked wonderful questions and seemed very compassionate and excited to learn!
