TAA-MN no longer provides a comprehensive packet of information to help those with a recent diagnosis of TS. We would direct you to the Tourette Association of America's website for an excellent collection of materials and helps.
For more information, please contact Lori Leigh Pentland-Swerine at: (612) 759-7112.
TAA-MN offers educational programs throughout the year.
TAA-MN has many books and videos that are available for your use. Please contact Andrea Bejarano at (612) 759-7112 to discuss your needs and we will help find a resource for you to borrow.
If you have a book or video that you would like to donate to our library, please call us.

“As a teacher, I possess a tremendous power to make a child's life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration. I can humiliate or honor, hurt or heal.”Haim Ginott
