I found your comment on the Blog of a Canadian who listed TS as an interest. He has been doing research with a neuropsychiatrist. They were finishing up a study on TS and preparing to publish. They might do future TS research.

I am a 38 yr. old female with moderate to severe Tourette's. I was not diagnosed until I was 32. My parents and I had a rough time with schools. I don't know the parenting end, since I have no children. I do know the part about being a kid with TS, however.

Who else in your family has TS, or a related spectrum disorder?

Hi,
I am here because you posted a comment on my site, http://amchazakosehshalom.blogspot.com/

To answer your questions: I am studying TS (as a neuropsychiatric researcher) and I have TS. I am glad to make any suggestions and answer any questions you may have. Please ask them in the comments section of my web-site and I promise to reply promptly. Also, would you like to place a link to my blog on your site? I think I will be blogging a fair bit about TS soon.

Sincerely,
Yaakov Ben-Moshe

I forgot to mention, I was also homeschooled (partially).

Okay, I found you on my own Blog, too. I check it later, since I know what the last post says, lol. It's great that you, too, are a fan of Heinlein. I will look over your Blog and try to bring myself up to speed on what you are doing.

I'm not at all surprised that homeschooling takes less time. I was essentially homeschooled, but it all happened after school. There were fewer laws permitting homeschooling, and my parents made me go to school so they wouldn't be thrown in jail.

My education happened in the evenings. This did not permit me the social contact of playing with other children after school. This is one reason I plan to homeschool when we get around to having children. Kids can actually end up with more time to socialize.

Beyond that, however, was the difficulty with my pace of learning. Much of my evening education was "enrichment," but to the point that it was actually a self-paced, accelerated program. I could never have started college at the age of fifteen were it not for the tutoring I received from my parents. You can't beat the student/teacher ratio of homeschooling!

My parents didn't know any of the diagnostic labels that could have been hung on me. I have numerous learning disabilities. They just knew their kid, and how to get something across to her. They, too, had to cope with major depression. I have had five hospitalizations.

tshsmom: ask and you shall receive... (one of the few biblical phrases that I find holds true)

tshsmom,

Thanks for stopping by my blog and thanks for the hint on making those lemon squares.

Amazing that you've been using this recipe for years. I found it on the web one day when I was looking for a quick lemon square recipe.

Wandering Coyote, who is a pastry chef, did some tweaking with the recipe, and I believe, improved it.

Best wishes to you and your family. And thanks for your interest.

Your blog has been quite educational for me. I'll be back to read further posts.
