Homeschooling Tourettes Syndrome Children
« on: October 22, 2008, 11:47:51 AM »
Here is a very good resource on the Tourettes Syndrome:

Tourettes Syndrome (TS) is often misunderstood, and misread. People often donít realize that TS is more than just tics. TS can affect the way a child learns and views life, as well as his overall socialization. Understanding how a child with TS learns, and knowing the facts about TS can go a long way on making learning more fun and productive.

Typically, tics increase as a result of tension or stress (but are not caused by stress) and decrease with relaxation or concentration on an absorbing task. (Taken from Tourette Syndrome Foundation of Canada )
