    Sportychik,

    The Tourette Syndrome Association has several local Chapters in Florida where you can call and participate in a meeting to meet others with Tourette. They are very active and always welcome new members.

    Here's how to contact the Florida Chapter:

    Florida Chapter 727-418-0240
    email tsaflorida@aol.com
    website: http://www.tsa-fl.org/

    They can direct you to the local group in your part of Florida.

    Hi and welcome!

    Steve provided great contact information to find a local TS chapter in your area.

    It helps to have others to talk too that have experienced the same things. The local chapters also tend to have group programs each month so you can get out among friends.

    You may be surprised but often teens either tell others about their TS at school or just keep it to themselves. This could mean that there are others possibly in your own community or even school that have TS too you never met.

    Check it out and let us know what you find.

    Motor tics can be a real pain sometimes and get different responses from different people.
    If school seems a bit rough it might be a good idea to ask a local chapter to provide a in service program from other students in your school to help make the TS not such a big deal.

    Spelling and writing can be a problem for some. My son uses a computer for this reason as the words flow easier and it is neat. When he has to write everything out it just becomes to much when he uses paper.

    Maybe a laptop would help you.

    Please keep us posted and feel free to join in other topics.
