Tourette Syndrome Singapore

Posts Tagged ‘CCHS

As part of our efforts to promote awareness of Tourette Syndrome in Singapore among the young population, our team conducted a talk on Tourette syndrome at Chung Cheng High School (Main) on 17th Oct 2008 as part of the students’ post exam activities.

It was a pleasant experience with the students, who mostly had not heard of Tourette Syndrome before.

Through our talk, we shared some of the symptoms, causes and treatments of Tourette Syndrome.

In addition, we showed some videos of Tourette Syndrome individuals sharing their feelings and thoughts. This enhanced the students’ understanding of Tourette Syndrome and how it has affected the lives of Tourette Syndrome individuals.

To allow the students to be able to relate to Tourette Syndrome individuals, we conducted a Tic Stimulation with them. This Tic Stimulation serves to let have a rough idea of how it feels like to have Tourette Syndrome – how distracting the tics can be while they are trying to concentrate on a task.

During the talk, we also informed the students about the Tourette Syndrome Care Group Singapore which have already been around for 6 years to assist TS individuals, their families and caregivers.

Finally we ended with a Question and Answer session to see of the students had a greater insight of Tourette Syndrome.
