We offer peer support for children, adults and parents of those with Tourette Syndrome. We also administer a website and provide information services for those with TS.

Professional development visits to schools and health care providers are encouraged and available on request.

In the three years since the Tourette's Association of NZ was formed more than 200 families have been in contact and 150 members have joined the Association.

In 2014 the Association hosted its first Camp Twitch for people with Tourette's and 97 people attended.

Camp Twitch 2016 has 112 people registered to attend in October 2016

Camp Twitch 2016  8 October 2015

That's right - Camp Twitch is happening again from October 4 to October 7, 2016 in the adventure capital of the North Island - ROTORUA!!

We had so much fun and made so many good friends in 2014 that we can't wait for the next Camp Twitch so we are beginning our fundraising now to make sure that no one misses out this time around.

Please help us bring together kiwi kids and teens with TS in a fun, friendly environment where they feel free to be themselves without being judged.

Thanks for 'giving a tic'
