Who Do We Support?

Individuals and families

We are happy to offer home visits to talk about any concerns and discuss how to move forward with diagnosis.

You can join us for our monthly support group meeting’s where we organise informative talks, activities for the children and a safe place with no judgement. This can often be the only time some of our members get the opportunity to mix with other people who have Tourette Syndrome or Tic Disorders. These meetings take place on the last Sunday of every month and are suitable for all ages. We also have a social group for our adults with Tics along with a group for parents and carers to get together (MADS).
We work closely with other organisations and individuals to enable us to offer opportunities for those within our group to access activities that are designed to meet our charity objectives. These activities will be designed to address issues such as isolation, confidence, behaviour management and stress and anxiety.

when possible TIC provides items to support individuals to self-manage symptoms, we also aim to deliver workshops that will give the tools needed to self-manage symptoms moving forwards.

Schools

We offer support within schools; this may be by delivering our free awareness talks or corresponding with teachers, children, and parents, to overcome obstacles and implement strategies

During Covid-19 restrictions we were unable to deliver our talks within schools. We put together a video that delivers facts and experiences from those who live with the condition. To access this video click school-talk 

Recently however, we have been back were we belong, in schools spreading awareness. Below is some recent feedback from schools.

To better understand the child, this document is ideal for sharing information click school-passport  

Each year we acknowledge those who make a difference. Please check out our awards page to see which school and teachers were acknowledged in 2020

 

Community

We are keen to spread awareness throughout the area and hope to do this by continuing to deliver our talks to all who will listen.
