Become a Youth Ambassador!
The New York City Chapter welcomes our two newsest Youth Ambassadors; Yuko and Griffin. Yuko is 16 years old who loves to play classical guitar and to write. Yuko has worked to ignore her Tourette Syndrome and pretend it did not exist. She was embarrased by it. She has now chosen to embrace her TS and become involved in the TS community. She is anxious to share with others as a Youth Ambassador to spread awareness and to help other young people who perhaps were like her and embarassed. She wants to help others accept their Tourette and be happy.
Griffin is 14 years old. He was diagnosed at the age of 6. He has successfully overcome all challenges that have come his way with his Tourette Syndrome and now as a Youth Ambassador wants to be a role model for others. Griffin says proudly; "TS hasn't stopped me and won't stop me ever."
Please join us in welcoming these two extraordinary young people who want to give back and make a difference.

Our annual public board meeting featured a Tourette Talk by
Dr. Cathy Budman
The topic was "TS and Resilience"
It was amazingly informative and focused on TS associated disorders in adults but as a mother with a child with TS, it completely applies to the child as well.
