Information for professionals supporting people with TS

Tourette Syndrome is a commonly misunderstood condition and we know that professionals working with people who have the condition are sometimes unsure how to best offer support. We often get requests for advice from teachers, employers and healthcare professionals so have put together guidance targeted specifically at them.

Employers

Employers have specific responsibilities when supporting people with TS. We can offer training, resources, tips on interviewing those with TS and information about reasonable adjustments to help support a person with TS in the workplace.

Health Professionals

On noticing symptoms of TS, people will often make an appointment with their GP to investigate the issue. So it is important that doctors understand the condition and know how to provide the best support and treatment. This guidance outlines steps to getting diagnosed by a specialist and ongoing support and treatment.

Teachers

Tourettes Action has compiled advice for teachers and other professionals working in education and supporting a child with TS. We have many resources and training offers to help reduce the impact of TS in the classroom.

Our Training Offer

All our training sessions are tailored to the organisation’s individual needs meaning what we offer comes from 'real life' experience, our trainers either having Tourette's themselves or having a child with TS. We know our strategies actually work in practice and are not strategies that are thought to work.
