Your membership in the PA Tourette Syndrome Alliance affords you many benefits and supports an organization that provides information, education and disability advocacy to those with Tourette Syndrome in Pennsylvania.  With your support we can help to promote awareness and understanding so that individuals with TS will be accepted!

The membership is just for one person, so the Lifetime Membership card can be personalized with their name.

Lifetime Membership is only for those over 18 because only those over 18 are permitted to vote for our Board of Directors.  Therefore the membership card can not be placed in your child’s name (if your are under the age of 18).

It is up to you whose name goes on the card–but perhaps the parent who is most likely to be calling PATSA for assistance with the school process or other supports.

This is common.  If more than one child with TS in your family is registered, you will also get a small welcome pack for each diagnosed child and you can access services for each of them with just one membership.

Outreach assistance:
An adult with TS may want to purchase a Lifetime Membership to access services, insure their newsletters continue or just to support PATSA’s mission!

Yes, because we are supported in part by the PA Department of Health, anyone can call for support and information to access Consultant Services.

There are several differences between “Registering” and “Lifetime Membership”.  With Lifetime Membership you receive an online Welcome Kit, a mailed Welcome Kit, a hard plastic membership card and access to the Members Only section of the website.  You also receive 10% discount for TS Family Camp & TS Family Retreat.

A family may want to purchase multiple memberships to support the services of the PA Tourette Syndrome Alliance.

Your $100 membership fee can be paid by credit card or by sending a check to PATSA.  There is also a choice to pay in 4 installments of $25.00 each.

We are currently starting a scholarship fund to assist those that would like to be Lifetime Members but lack the funds to do so. 

Until there are scholarship funds available, you can request a scholarship for 1 year at a time by writing to sherrie@patsainc.org

This can be done at times, on a case-by-case basis.  Please contact us at sherrie@patsainc.org to discuss this option. 

Yes, a business or medical practice can support PATSA by purchasing a Lifetime Membership.  If you send an email to sherrie@patsainc.org we will make sure you have multiple brochures for your business in your Welcome Packet.

Absolutely, we welcome anyone to become Lifetime Members!  Even if you don’t directly use Consultant Services, there are many other benefits, including supporting PATSA, that extended family members and friends may enjoy!
