B. Duncan McKinlay B.A. '96

Dr. B. Duncan McKinlay is a registered Psychologist (supervised practice) with the College of Psychologists of Ontario and is currently working for the Toronto District School Board.

Since being diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome at the age of 19, Duncan has focused his abundant energies on outreach, community service and awareness of Tourette Syndrome and a host of associated disorders. His efforts have been recognized by the Tourette Syndrome Foundation of Canada with the Richard Stein Memorial Award for making an outstanding difference in the quality of life for people with Tourette's.

Duncan is much sought after as a guest speaker in hospitals, universities, and school boards. He has assisted many organizations and families through his website (www.lifesatwitch.com) and has received international acclaim and attention from various media including the Discovery Channel, The Montel Williams Show, and Maclean's Magazine. In 2001 and 2002, Duncan's willingness to share from his personal experience culminated with the release of an award-winning documentary on his life: Life's A Twitch.

 

DUNCAN'S GOAL:

"[To be] a caring, effective, and respected clinician, presenter, and researcher not in spite of my difference, but because of it."
