Family Support Group: The Genetics of TS & Saying I Do

Thursday, July 22 at 3 p.m.
Facilitators: Dr. Gary Heiman and Christine Seymour

Individuals with TS may ask the question, “If I have TS, will my children have TS?” or “What happens if I decide to get married, how do I explain the medical implications to my intended spouse?” These are the thoughts that may run through one’s mind. In this discussion, you will learn more about the genetics of TS, and how to help your partner understand the medical implications for an inherited disorder.

Saturday, July 24
9:30 to 11:30 a.m.
Back by Popular Demand
During our second Parent Summit, long-time educator and mom to three now adult children with TS, Cheryl Ludwig will provide parents with valuable tips, strategies, and resources to help prepare your children for increasing independence—and to help parents with the difficult task of letting go during the transition to young adulthood. There will be ample time for open discussion and questions.
