Even though TAND affects 90% of those with TSC over their lifetime, everyone experiences unique symptoms, so interventions may be different from individual to individual. In the Behavioral Issues and TAND guide you will find detailed information regarding each of the impacts of the six major areas. In addition, the booklet discusses behavioral intervention plans and how to put one in place as well as a functional behavior assessment. This is especially important to understand prior to student education meetings and should be shared with the school leaders.
Other helpful resources can be found on the TANDem website, behavioral management webinars by the Child Neurology Foundation. For those who are looking for therapists in your area and are unsure of who to contact you can look up your area on the National BCBA therapist website.
If you have additional questions or concerns, please reach out to one of our TSC Support Navigators.
