Default Introducing ourselves : Tourettes

Hi everyone.
My cousin was diagnosed with Tourettes and I'm helping him with the site as he is 12 years old.

We are looking for a support group for Tourettes in Pretoria South Africa (if there are any!) or a place where he can meet other Tourettes teenagers to chat about what's happening. Either online or in person.

Thanks.

Welcome to NeuroTalk KAASA

We have a TS forum here
http://neurotalk.psychcentral.com/forum25.html

These sites/articles in SA may be of help to you in finding local support groups:

http://www.childmag.co.za/content/un...e#.VbVIuflv42E
If you scroll down to FINDING HELP (above the comments section) you will see some contact info

http://www.parkinsons.co.za/12-disea...ettes-syndrome

http://www.tsa-usa.org/AboutUs/ainte...ml#southafrica

My son was dx with TS when he was 10, and although we tried conventional treatments, we eventually switched to a more natural protocol after he had very severe reactions to the prescribed medications. The improvement in his tics and co-morbid conditions was close to miraculous! He is in his mid 20s now and doing very well, a talented musician and living a full life. I wrote about the success we had with natural treatments for him on our TS forum here some years ago.

Much of what we did was thanks to a friend sending me info on Latitudes/ACN http://latitudes.org/
The site owner there, Sheila Rogers, has written an excellent book on this different way of treating tics and TS
http://latitudes.org/store/natural-t...syndrome-book/

There is also a youth friendly site, Life's A Twitch, that he may enjoy....... www.lifesatwitch.com
It is mainly archives there now, but still a lot of info and a Youth Haven section for him to look at.

I hope that gives you some info in your quest to help your cousin
