• ASSIST

    ASSIST is an assessment and intervention program for students who exhibit symptoms of Tourette Syndrome or related tic disorders. Utilizing proven research-based evaluation and intervention strategies, ASSIST works with students in their school environment to decrease tic symptoms and improve overall functioning and quality of life.


    Treatment includes:
    • Psychoeducation to identify positive and negative influencers
    • Self-awareness training to self-monitor for early signs that a tic is about to occur
    • Relaxation training to decrease general level of tension and discomfort
    • Competing response training to teach a replacement response to the tic
    • Social support for training of staff, peers and family members to improve success
