Tourette Syndrome (TS) is often an misunderstood neuropsychiatric disorder. A doctor we have worked with came up with an analogy of how to explain it using a train and its many cars. We believe with the right illustration, this may help people understand how the disorder affects different people in different ways AND also changes and evolves in every person.
The New Jersey Center for Tourette Syndrome is a not-for-profit organization committed to the advocacy of children and families with Tourette Syndrome and its associated disorders. Dedicated to delivering high quality services to these individuals, the Center recognizes the importance of educating the public, medical professionals, and teachers about this disorder through programs and affiliations with public schools, health centers, and universities.
To ensure that individuals with Tourette Syndrome are contributing members of their communities and society at large, the Center is committed to leading the development of diagnostic and treatment therapies and actively supporting research for a cure.
