We help support programing for children with Tourette syndrome.
Today, Sheryl Pruitt and I visited the hotel to educate them about Tourette Syndrome and the co-morbid conditions they may experience from people attending the conference. The Marriott staff were very appreciative of this experience as they now feel prepared to give our attendees the best possible treatment, while at the same time educate other guests about what is going on. It is our goal for everyone attending to feel comfortable throughout the conference. We also created an informational letter to give to all the guests staying at the hotel so they are aware of what Tourette's is all about.
Don't forget, if you are interested in getting a room at the Marriott Hotel, the deadline for the $86/per night rate goes only until Januray 17th. Be sure to contact the hotel by then. More info on website: http://tourettesyndromeconference.com/about/
All those who register for the conference will receive a free copy of the Hallmark Hall of Fame movie, Front of the Class! I hope my movie continues to inspire others with Tourette Syndrome. You can keep it, share it with a local school or pass it on to a friend. More surprises will be given too! Glad we can do it! Cheers, Brad
Looking forward to parents meeting other parents who have kids with TS. Also looking forward to catching up with other adults with TS. Should be a fun time!
