Introduction to Tourette’s Syndrome
Tourette’s syndrome is a neurological disorder that manifests itself in tics – involuntary, repetitive movements or vocalizations. It is estimated that 200,000 Americans have Tourette’s, with the majority being children and adolescents.
For many students with Tourette’s, the condition can be very isolating. They may be ridiculed by classmates, and find it difficult to focus in class or participate in extracurricular activities. The Tourette’s Syndrome Student Bag Program was created to help these students feel more included in their school community and to provide them with the resources they need to succeed.
Each student participating in the program will receive a backpack filled with school supplies and information about Tourette’s syndrome. The bag also includes a social script card, which can be used to help the student explain their condition to others. In addition, each student will have access to an online support group where they can connect with other students dealing with similar issues.
What is the Student Bag Program?
The Tourette’s Syndrome Student Bag Program is a new initiative from the Tourette’s Syndrome Association of Australia (TSAA) designed to support students with Tourette’s syndrome in the classroom.
The program provides each participating student with a bag of resources and information specifically tailored to their individual needs, as well as a list of recommended strategies for dealing with tics and other challenges associated with the condition.
The aim of the program is to help students with Tourette’s syndrome feel more comfortable and confident in the classroom setting, and to provide them with the tools they need to succeed.
We believe that this program has the potential to make a real difference in the lives of students with Tourette’s syndrome, and we are excited to see it roll out across Australia in the coming months.

Potential Challenges and Solutions
As with any new program, there are bound to be some challenges that arise. Here are a few potential challenges with the Tourette’s Syndrome Student Bag Program and some possible solutions:
- Some students may feel embarrassed or self-conscious about carrying around a bag specifically for their condition. Solution: Make sure to explain to all students that the bags are for anyone who has Tourette’s syndrome, not just those who show symptoms. Encourage them to be proud of their uniqueness and to use the bags as a way to start conversations with others about their condition.
- It may be difficult to keep track of who has which bag and when they need to return it. Solution: Have a sign-out sheet where students can write their name and the date they took the bag. This will help you keep track of who has which bag and when it needs to be returned.
- Some students may forget to return the bag or lose it altogether. Solution: Send reminders via email or have a announcement made over the intercom reminding students to return their bags at the end of each day. If a student does lose their bag, have a replacement ready so they don’t have to go without one.
