Children with Tourette's Syndrome discuss the challenges of living with Tourette's, a misunderstood and often stigmatizing condition. They demonstrate some of their tics, and talk about their lives with tics including embarrassing and isolating situations at school and among friends. Written by
I hope that people accept me for who I am, and that I don't have to be these other people, I can just be me. I want other people to think: Oh, she's really cool - she's my friend, she has Tourette's Syndrome, whatever.

As a sister of a brother who had a severe case of Tourette's and a mother of a son who has mild Tourette's, I think the show was awesome. I think if anyone would watch this, they would be very understanding as to what people with Tourette's go through. I work at a school and have heard teacher's comments on tics, not understanding that they just can not "stop it and settle down". I think this would be a very good learning tool for all school staff to watch. I think it would also work as a good Character Counts teaching tool for students, so that all students could understand that these kids are just as normal as you and I, except for the tics, and they need friends just like everyone else.
