“In Safe Hands” – Toolkit for Teachers
Tuberous Sclerosis Australia (TSA) is a non-profit organisation that exists to support people living with the rare genetic disease known as Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC). TSA has an almost 40-year history of helping children and families affected by this devastating disease.
TSC causes tumors to grow on a young person’s brain and heart, and then later in life in their lungs, skin and kidneys. TSC frequently causes difficult to control epilepsy, intellectual disabilities, autism and a range of neuro-psychiatric disorders (including depression, anxiety and challenging behaviours). Every week in Australia one baby is born with TSC – there is currently no cure.
