    Virtual Community Project

    The ViCTor Project is a multi-component program that will provide much needed supports and resources to individuals and families living with TS, in areas that are not supported by a TSFC Chapter or Resource Unit, or who have other barriers that prevent them from accessing support services in their own communities. It is currently in development and will roll out over three years (2014-2016).

    The Great Wall of Tics is the world’s first online collection of tics created entirely by people with TS around the world. It’s truly a community project, and we need your help to make it grow.

That’s all there is to it. You can add as many different tics as you’d like. You can also ‘like’ the tics that are already there or leave a comment. Don’t forget to tell your friends!
