Edmonton Information Support Sessions

 

Parent Support Group

Our Parent Support Group runs each month from September to June.

Sessions take place at:
Jasper Place Library
6:30 – 8:30 pm
9010 – 156 Street
Edmonton

(Extra parking is available in the lot on the east side of the building)

Please check our website at www.tsedmonton.com for current session dates.

Our goal is to provide as much help and strategies as possible. We offer two support group styles:

Speaker: We host experts who provide you with specific information relating to TS and its associated conditions. Our speakers will present and answer questions for about 90 minutes and the final 30 minutes is used to have coffee and network with parents and chapter volunteers.

Round table: During our round table support groups, the group comes together to offer support to parents and share stories and ideas. This is an opportunity to ask questions and see what is working for families and what is not.

Open to all. No membership required.

Because of the sensitive nature of the discussions that occasionally occur, support groups are not open to children.

 

Adult Support Group

Our Adult Support Group runs each month all year long.

Sessions take place at:
Jasper Place Library
6:30 – 8:30 pm
9010 – 156 Street
Edmonton

(Extra parking is available in the lot on the east side of the building)

Please check our website at www.tsedmonton.com for current session dates.

This support group is hosted by an adult who has Tourette Syndrome (TS) and is designed to offer support to anyone 18+ with TS who would like to meet other people with TS. We share struggles and triumphs, offer success stories and ideas, all in a comfortable environment. You will find friendship and understanding in a group that knows how you feel. This is a chance to meet those who understand you better than anyone else! Bring your spouse with you too so that they can also learn about the world of TS!

This support group is drop-in style, meaning you can come and go anytime between 6:30 and 8:30 pm.

Open to all. No membership required.

Because of the sensitive nature of the discussions that occasionally occur, support groups are not open to children.
