NJCTS Parent Connection

In collaboration with the New Jersey Center for Tourette Syndrome and Associated Disorders (NJCTS), the Tourette Syndrome Association of New Jersey (TSANJ) presents the "NJCTS Parent Connection" on a bi-monthly basis at five regional locations throughout New Jersey.

Parents of Tourette Syndrome and other associated neurological disorders often find it extremely difficult to locate, get to know and ultimately bond with other families struggling to mitigate through similar circumstances.   The NJCTS Parent Connection aims to change that by providing face-to-face discussion, encouragement, friendship and networking for TS families.  Following is the list of "connection points", but be sure to check back on the day of the meeting to make sure it is still taking place or to download directions:
