Parents are the best advocates for securing the special educational accomodations that their TS children often require and to which they are entitled by law.To help you become an effective educational advocate for your child, please consider the resources offered by the national TSA. You can also contact Lynn Dunlap — a former educator and current member of the Greater Missouri Chapter’s Board of Directors — for assistance and suggestions, or to schedule a talk at your child’s school. Lynn can be reached at 314-984-9019 / lmchd52 @ gmail.com.
In addition: The Greater Missouri Chapter has an ambassador to children and teens. Drew Guise, a college student, has been trained to speak to schools and other organizations about TS. He can be reached at (636)938-3858.
The Kansas City area also has a teen ambassador, Maddie Mapes. To contact her, please e-mail her at maddmaddie17 @ gmail . com.
