Tourette's Association of New Zealand

Tourette's Association of New Zealand

The Tourette's Association of NZ is the first and only charitable trust to provide support and information services for kiwi kids and adults


Since its beginnings in 2013 the Tourette's Association NZ has been providing peer support for children, young people and adults living with Tourette Syndrome as well as for parents and family members.

Over the years we have supported hundreds of families and individuals in many ways such as:

connecting them with others on the same journey;

providing peer-to-peer support groups;

facilitating educational workshops (now via Zoom in a post covid world);

hosting the annual Camp Twitch for families and young people;

providing outreach services to families as well as educational and health provision services.

The Tourette's Association NZ is currently advocating on behalf of kiwis living with Tourette Syndrome that the Ministry of Health recognise Tourette Syndrome as a disability.

More about us

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 as well as schools if necessary.
