EP 1045B – Talking with The President of the Tourettes Association of America

Show: (May 25, 2021)

Studies have estimated that 1 of every 162 children (0.6%) have Tourette's Syndrome (TS).

Studies have estimated that 1 of every 162 children (0.6%) have Tourette's Syndrome (TS). A CDC study using parent reports found that 1 of every 360 (0.3%) children 6 – 17 years of age in the US have received a diagnosis of TS; this is about 138,000 children.

The Tourette Association of America (TAA) is working hard to increase social acceptance and tolerance for people with Tourette Syndrome. People with Tourette Syndrome have long been misunderstood and mocked for their uncontrollable symptoms which can lead to long-term effects on their mental health. It is estimated that 1 million Americans are living with Tourette Syndrome or a Tic Disorder – and an alarming 50% are going undiagnosed. The complexities of this disorder leave the community misunderstood, overlooked, and mocked for their uncontrollable symptoms.

Amanda Talty is the CEO/President of The Tourette Association of America and joins us today to tell us more about her role with the organization, working to reduce stigmas around Tourette's, ticks and picking up on possible signs of the syndrome in children.
