2016 Atlanta Tourette Conference and Casino Night Huge Success!

The 2016 Atlanta Tourette Syndrome Conference/Casino Night was a huge success with 140 people attending the conference and 100 people attending the Casino Night.

Conference sessions were available for parents of kids with TS, adults with TS and children who have TS.

Sheila Rogers DeMare was one of the keynote speakers as she spoke about integrative medicines.  Elaine Taylor-Klaus was the second keynote speaker on the topic of Parental Coaching.

Breakout sessions were taking place during the day focusing on newly diagnosed families, instructional strategies in the classroom, ways the food you eat impact the way we live, oils and a whole food approach, CBIT, and a chance for parents to discuss life at home.

The adults with TS sessions were led by Darin Bush and included a chance for participants to get to know each other via improv and discussions.  Adults attended various breakout sessions they were interested in during the day.

The kids enjoyed a fun filled day hearing from Jaylen Arnold and his Bullying No Way! Tour.  Then met ventriloquist Kellie Haines and her puppets. They then went on to create their own puppets.  Dylan Brady stole the show and played his guitar and sang for the kids.  To finish the day the kids learned about the Tourette Association of America’s Ambassador program. This was a day for the kids to see they were not alone in their quest to live life with TS.

The Saturday Casino Night was a hit as many participants from the conference joined local guests for the event.  Brad spoke about the Foundation and the difference we have been making in the TS community.  Dylan Brady highlighted the night as he played several songs for the group.  Then dinner was served and the guests gambled the night away enjoying blackjack, roulette, Texas Holdem’, and craps.  Raffle tickets were earned and prizes were given out.  Between the silent auction, sponsors and the actual event, we raised some good funds to continue supporting kids with TS across the United States.

Can’t Let “IT” Win Contest


Have you been dealing with Tourette Syndrome and feel like you have beat the odds? Have you found ways to beat this medical condition?


Then you may be interested in joining the Can’t Let “It” Win Contest.



See details below!



Can’t Let “It” Win Contest

Inspiring Others One Day at a Time


Everyone has some sort of challenge they must overcome in life. Some challenges may be small while others are large. The barriers placed in front of us sometimes prevent us from achieving our goals, while other times it helps build character and allows us to follow our dreams. Hence, the true gift of ones self is the way you handle the challenges placed in front of you and how you move forward.


We learned from the book and movie by Brad Cohen, Front of the Class, that we can’t allow “it” to win. For Brad, Tourette Syndrome was his “it” and he didn’t allow Tourette Syndrome to get the best of him. He learned to embrace his challenges by keeping a positive attitude and never giving up.


This contest is a way to continue the positive energy that was seen after people watched Front of the Class. It is a way for people to be inspired by others’ stories. We are looking people of all ages to share how you made it through your difficult times with Tourette Syndrome to eventually find success. Your story should inspire others with Tourette Syndrome to be the very best they can be in life.


The format of this contest can take form as an essay, song, art, video, photography, the use of technology, poetry, etc. We encourage your creativity.


The criteria will be judged on:

1) Content

2) Creativity

3) The Message

4) Potential for future impact on another person’s life


Due Date: April 1, 2016


E-mail all submissions electronically to brad@bradcohentourettefoundation.com

In the email, include your name, where you are from, your age and contact info.
