Tourette Canada currently offers two different E-Learning opportunities.

The Virtual Community for Tourette Program offers five self-guided e-learning components, provided without cost.

Advocacy to the Rescue is a moderated course provided at cost, which teaches parents how to advocate for their children within the school system.


 

Do you have:

Difficulty voicing your needs and concerns to your child’s teacher?

A hard time dealing with negative emotions when meeting with teachers?

A tense relationship with the administration at your child’s school?

Trouble understanding Individual Education Plans or your provincial equivalent?

Feelings of helplessness and/or being overwhelmed about your child’s educational career?

 

Do you want to:

Discover the most effective ways of communicating with educators?

Learn about your rights as a parent, how the education system works, and how to build a mutually beneficial relationship with your child’s teacher?

Gather tools that will help you become a powerful parent advocate?

If you answered yes to any of the above, then you will benefit from Advocacy To The Rescue, an e-learning course designed specifically for parents of school-age children with Tourette Syndrome. Tourette Canada created this program to serve as flagship resource, one that will dramatically improve parent-educator relationships within the TS community and beyond. Students have 8 weeks to complete all units, and are responsible for ordering the three course texts, which are available for ordering online. The course is $275 for members and $300 for non-members.
