These are pictures of my son, Alec, who spoke on behalf of the NJ Center for Tourette Syndrome & Associated Disorders (NJCTS) at the January 20 Mitzvah Day at Congregation B’Nai Israel in Millburn, N.J.
Alec spoke about how people from North Jersey can connect with other Tourette Syndrome families in their area;get referrals for doctors who specialize in treating TS; and learn about the various support and educational services NJCTS provides families, educators and medical professionals throughout New Jersey.
It went well. Alec shared a lot of information and may have helped a family or two. He would really like to get more involved and start doing Youth Ambassador presentations in the local schools.
