The Tourette Canada In-Service Program provides speakers who give customized presentations on Tourette Syndrome. These educational presentations are provided to schools, community and professional groups and cover information on TS, its associated disorders and provide strategies for dealing with Tourette Syndrome.
Please note: We are working to revamp our In-Service program offering. We don’t have any active In-Service presenters at this time as we begin to re-work this program, but come 2022 we will be back in session.
For now any questions can be directed to our Home Office in Mississauga, ON at 1-800-361-3120 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
What is an In-Service Presentation?
Tourette Canada’s In-Service Presentations are educational sessions that provide details on Tourette Syndrome (TS) and its associated disorders such as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD).
A typical in-service presentation gives an overview of Tourette Syndrome, including describing the symptoms and the impact to the person with the disorder. Details on the associated disorders are also covered. For audiences such as educational professionals the presentation covers classroom strategies.
Our In-Service Presentations are provided by a national team of presenters who have a thorough knowledge and understanding of Tourette Syndrome and its associated conditions. Presentations are available either in person, or virtually using video-conferencing software, depending on your location and the availability of one of our trained In-Service Presenters.
