Storyline

Children with Tourette's Syndrome, ages 6 to about 14, candidly describe what it's like to have Tourette's, a poorly understood neurological disorder. They show what their tics are like, talk about difficulties with school, social isolation, embarrassment, and feeling misunderstood and even unwanted due to the inherited condition they have no control over. The DVD has extras that explain Tourette's Syndrome, both from the viewpoint of the children and that of experts, as well as where to get more information about Tourette's.

This was awesome.
22 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
