Thread: hello everybody.

  1. #1

    Default hello everybody.

    wanted to say hi, i have a daughter of 12 who was dx with tourettes, ocd, add,anxiety and depression last year, she has motor and vocal tics, she also self harms. at the moment we live in england but are hoping to move to winnipeg soon and would like any info on schools in the area that maybe sympathetic to tourettes.

    isabelle hasn't had a good experience of school in england, she has been bullied badly and the school failed to tackle it effectively, so she ended up a social outcast, and experienced a sort of breakdown where she was hallucinating, so had to be hositalisedfor 8 weeks in a secure childrens hospital.

    isabelle is a bright girl and is above average at school, but the hospital said that emotionally shes about 8yrs, making it difficult to interact with her own peer group.

    anyway, the last year has been a steep learning curve, with loads of ups and downs for all the family as ts doesn't just affect the suffer but all of those that love them as well.

    best wishes to you all, and i'm looking forward to getting to know you all

    Default hello everybody.

    Welcome and I am glad you found us.

    My son too has experienced issues at school in the past due to his TS+ and the lack of education from staff.

    You may want to consider contacting the local chapter where you will move and have them schedule an in service program for staff and students at her new school.

    This program made a major difference in the introduction of my son to a new school and he has developed into a more adjusted students with no melt downs, upsets and few tics.
    We also provided a slow intro to the school were he did not attend the entire day at first to stabilize anxiety issues and develop positive social skills. He is also 12 and living with a confirmed diagnosis.

    In our case the programs were held on a day he did not attend and it was approached generally and never singled him out to other students.

    I hope you are able to join in and post your own experiences on other topics. We are here to support you through your journey.

    Take care
    PJK
