Supporting each other.

The Colorado TAA network provides a unifying link to support all Coloradans formally diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome and Tic Disorders. We are officially affiliated with and supported by the Tourette Association of America, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization.

About

About
Colorado TAA

The team that created this Colorado TAA network envisions a steadily evolving, statewide association of support groups and other community organizations supporting individuals and families managing the challenges associated with Tourette Syndrome and Tic Disorders. There are currently two active Support Groups in the state: The Denver Metropolitan Area TAA Support Group and the Northern Colorado TAA Support Group. These two organizations are supported by professionals committed to enhancing the quality of services available to these families. 

Our organizations host in-person and virtual meetings; provide a wide range of informative and educational resources; make in-service educational presentations to support students and families who request such support; manage active Facebook pages and mailing lists to keep members apprised of new treatment options and research developments while providing a forum for member interaction. We also identify medical professionals who can support families. In pre-Covid days, we sponsored social activities for our community and hope to reestablish this practice.

INTEGRATIVE TIC CLINIC

Colorado TAA is delighted to announce that it has entered into a collaborative effort with Children’s Hospital Colorado in establishing an Integrative Tic Clinic within the hospital’s Pediatric Neurology Department. The Clinic, which convenes once a month, includes neurologists; occupational therapists trained by the TAA to deliver Comprehensive Behavioral Intervention for Tics (CBIT) training; a psychiatrist who can explore the presence of co-occurring neurological conditions; and a representative of the Denver Area TAA Support Group, who introduces patients and their families to the wide
range of resources and supports available through the National TAA organization and
Colorado-based family Support Groups.
