Report on Understanding Tourette Syndrome Public Forum

Posted on: September 14, 2008

As part of Institute of Mental Health’s 80th anniversary and in conjunction with the 5th Congress of the Asian Society For Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Allied Profession(ASCAPAP), the Tourette Syndrome Care Group Singapore organised Understanding Tourette Syndrome Public Forum on 30th August 2008 at Suntec City meeting rooms 303-305.

The aim of this forum was to raise awareness for about Tourette Syndrome (TS) through multi-talented presentations by sufferers, caregivers/parents, teachers, psychologists and psychiatrists.

During this forum, the audience of this forum was given a short introduction to Tourette Syndrome and learned that Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) can accompany Tourette Syndrome.

Next, school teachers, parents and caregivers picked up tips on how to handle children with Tourette Syndrome, such as introducing a gluten-free diet which might decrease the frequency of symptoms in certain individuals. Sufferers who shared their personal experiences in coping with Tourette Syndrome gave the audience inspirational insights on living positively with the message “You have Tourettes but Tourette doesn’t have you.”

Lastly, an Q & A session gave several audience the chance to clear their doubts on Tourette Syndrome together with a panel of experts. The entire forum, lasting 2 hours, proved to be a great information session for those who would like to find out more about Tourette Syndrome. Although this forum was held concurrently with the Comex PC show which congested the entire Suntec City Convention Hall, that did not stop parents, caregivers and sufferers from attending what proved to be another successful event organised by TSCGS.
