If I hadn\'t found this group I would have felt so lost when my son was diagnosed with Tourette\'s Syndrome. Kim and Beverley came to my house to talk me through the diagnosis and went into my sons School to deliver awareness training to his teachers. We have attended the support group and always had a warm welcome. They have given me the confidence to best support my son and I always know where to turn if I have any questions. They have really made a difference to our lives and I can\'t thank them enough. (anon)
