Join the Tourette Association for a Zoom live discussion on January 20, 2021 at 7pm ET on being a father to a child, or children, with Tourette Syndrome (TS). This discussion will bring dads in the TS community together to focus on the father’s perspective of supporting children with Tourette Syndrome. Paul Raleigh, Marc F. Schmidt, Ph.D., and Keith Coffman M.D., who have kids with TS within the age range of 5-23, will lead the discussion and share their experiences on navigating fatherhood with children with TS.

If you have a question you’d like to ask ahead of time, please leave it below so the presenters can answer it during the discussion.

Key Take-Aways: Connect with other dads, some who have kids with TS and some who have kids and have TS themselves. Hear stories about living with kids with Tourette Syndrome and have the opportunity to share your story. Gain insight into managing family life with Tourette Syndrome.
