Tourettes Action Identity Card
"When people are staring at me, I give them a card and walk away."
The symptoms of Tourette Syndrome can be hard to explain and can sometimes lead to misunderstanding. We developed IdenTicit to help people with TS provide evidence of their diagnosis and explain their symptoms, with something that will easily fit in their pocket or wallet.
"Even if you don't use it much it gives you extra confidence and I found I went to places that I'd previously avoided with it."
The Identity Card Pack consists of a photo ID card stating that the bearer has been diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome and a pack of business cards that explain the symptoms of TS and possible medications and give details of where you can go for further information.
In a recent survey, 100% of TA Identity Card users said they would recommend the scheme to others.
"It means I don't have to talk to strangers if I don't want to, or find the right words to explain."
The Identity Card Pack costs just £15. If you think it would help you or your child, please download the application form here.
