Tourette's Syndrome & Special Education Eligibility

Posted by: admin

Students with Tourette’s syndrome are not automatically entitled to special education services. Eligibility depends on several factors. Simply having Tourette’s is not the only qualification. For example the child’s educational performance must be affected as a result of the Tourette’s syndrome. If Tourette’s is directly causing your student low grades and difficulty in school, you the parent will need to advocate for them. If you do not speak up, then the school may not help your child.
