Chances are, if you’re reading this, you have a child or teenager with Tourette Syndrome. But did you know that there is a blog just for teens for TS? There is! It’s called Teens4TS, and right now, we have teenagers from all over the world discussing their lives with Tourette on it!
Exciting things are happening over at TS, from a video log (or “vlog” chain) that originated on Facebook, to the “Great Wall of Tics” that also can be found here on this blog, to National Youth Ambassadors taking their Tourette stories all the way to Washington to help spread advocacy for the disorder that affects as many as 1 in 100 kids.
We at TSParentsOnline encourage you to check out what the teens at Teens4TS are doing, as well as encourage your teen — if you have one or know one — to jump online and join the community there either as a reader or blogger. They won’t regret it. They might even learn something new about themselves and the wonderful lives which they lead.
So head on over to Teens4TS today and spread the word. That’s what advocacy for TS is all about!
