Ways you can help me start up the Tourette's Syndrome Awareness Photography Campaign.
Submissions can be sent to me in a message or to firstname.lastname@example.org.
1. Help me come up with a creative name! If you have name suggestions, please comment below, message me, or send me an e-mail at email@example.com
2. Send in a photo! In order for your photo to be a part of the campaign, it needs to be high quality, creative, and probably will have to have taken some preparation. Anyone can take a high quality, moving, and amazing picture with the right preparation, time, and effort. The photo in some way should say something about Tourette's Syndrome or its associated conditions. Along with your picture, send in a title for it and a description. The title can be as short as a few words or as long as a paragraph or a short essay. Describe to the people who might view this picture what is going on in the picture. You can say as much or as little as you want to. Here are some ideas/ idea starters for a picture:
-Picture of your child or yourself ticcing (mid simple tic, mid complex tic, mid vocal tic)
-Picture of your child or yourself doing an OCD ritual
-Picture of your child of yourself doing something that has been caused by Sensory Processing Disorder (example: covering ears, covering eyes, laying on the floor because of over stimulation, picture of your or your child's own unique way of dealing with over stimulation)
-Picture of doing something caused by ADHD
-Picture of doing soemthing cased by any other co-occouring condition that I have not mentioned above
-Picture of yourself or your child taking medication or with their medications placed out in front of them
-Picture of yourself or your child tired out from ticcing
-Picture of yourself or your child with something that they use to calm their tics (singing, playing with a dog, laying under a weighted blanket, etc)
-Anything else you can think of that would say something about having TS+, these are just starter ideas!
3. Spread the Word about the photo campaign! Tell anyone you know who has TS+ to send in a picture!
Once again, submissions can be sent in to me in a message or to firstname.lastname@example.org.
