As an adult with TS, you can connect with the Tourette community virtually via theOnline Forum. The Virtual Community Program also offers a number of services and supports that are designed to reduce social isolation and empower adults with Tourette Syndrome. Whether you’re interested in viewing an e-learning module on the workplace or meeting with a professional counsellor, the Virtual Community Program has you covered.
