Description

The NYU Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry in Partnership with the Tourette Association of America and Centers for Disease Control Tourette Health and Education Program Presents:

Addressing School-related Impairments in Students with Tics and Tourette Disorder in the Classroom: A Professional Development and Continuing Education Workshop for Educators

This workshop aims to provide an overview of tics and Tourette Disorder for teachers and other school personnel, as well as instruction in facilitating earlier identification of Tourette Disorder and related conditions that contribute to academic difficulties, such as Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). A panel of experts will discuss the relationship between Tourette Disorder, ADHD, and Executive Dysfunction, highlighting related school impairments, such as organizational deficits. Participants will learn best practices for addressing these issues, including school consultation, behavior modification, and a hands-on and practical approach to addressing issues with organization, time management, and planning: Organizational Skills Training. Participants will also gain private access to a Tourette Association of America and Centers for Disease Control online training module, which, upon completion, allows program participants to facilitate in-service trainings for other educators in schools.

*This program satisfies requirements for New York State Education Department’s Continuing Teacher and Leader Education credits. Certificate will be provided at the end of the workshop.*

Program objectives:

Participants will

1. Learn basic information about prevalence and presentation of tics, Tourette Disorder, and related co-occurring conditions, such as Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder

2. Learn scientifically-based instructional practices for improving the academic achievement and functional performance of children with tics, Tourette Disorder, and Other Health Impairments

3. Gain skills for facilitating high-quality, intensive preservice preparation and professional development for all personnel who work with children with disabilities
