TS & professionals
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.
Guidance for education professionals
Tourettes Action has compiled advice for teachers and other professionals working in education and supporting a child with TS. There is information on the steps to follow after a child is diagnosed and methods to reduce the impact of TS in the classroom. Read our guidance for teachers.
Advice for employers
Employers have specific responsibilities when supporting people with TS. This guidance looks at those duties as well as ways to reduce the impact of TS in the workplace. Read our guidance for employers.
Guidance of healthcare professionals
On noticing symptoms of TS, people will often make an appointment with their GPs 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. Read our guidance for healthcare professionals.
