May 15- June 15 is recognized as Tourette Syndrome Awareness Month

Tourette Syndrome is a Tic Disorder that consists of involuntary, repetitive movements, and vocalizations. Tics can consist of a combination of vocal sounds or motor movements. Tics can often increase or decrease dependent upon the setting, stress, anxiety, excitement, fatigue, or illness. Some strategies to support students who have Tourette Syndrome in your classrooms include: not focusing on the student’s tics, offering the student breaks, and educating others who work with the student about Tourette Syndrome and their tics.
