The TS Alliance recognizes parents and young adults often face many difficulties regarding educational and school-related issues. This section of our website was developed to help families and individuals successfully navigate through the educational system.
The TS Alliance is proud to manage an incredible group of volunteers who provide local resources in most US states and staff who can provide guidance on education issues and training for local school districts on how learning is unique for people with tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC). If you would like help navigating educational resources for someone with tsc, please begin by completing this Intake Form: TS Alliance | IEP Intake Form. We are committed to responding to all requests within 48 hours on business days.
If you have questions, please call Shelly Meitzler, Regional Program Manager East, at (800) 225-6872 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Educator Mentor Program (EMP) was developed to support school systems in understanding the learning needs of children with TSC. The EMP includes administrators, therapists, physiologists, and teachers from pre-kindergarten to college level having experience with TSC. They provide one-on-one support to any professional in the school system needing education and support in understanding the educational complexities of TSC. For more information contact Shelly Meitzler at email@example.com or (800) 225-6872.
