Study seeks adolescents with Tourette’s


Young people with Tourette syndrome in the East Midlands are being asked to take part in a study to examine the support provided for adolescents with the condition.

The study’s authors are seeking to interview 35 young people with Tourette syndrome attending mainstream secondary school, their parents and school staff members. An online survey of 200 secondary schools will also be conducted.

Called Improving the Psychosocial Experiences of Adolescents with Tourette Syndrome, the study is funded by a grant awarded to Tourettes Action from the BIG Lottery Fund. Its findings will be used to inform the development of training and educational materials.
