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.

Thank you for such a great documentary. My niece has tourettes and she had tough times while she was a teenager. she is now 21years old. She and the children in this documentary are the bravest people I know. Education is the key. All teachers should be educated when they have a child in their class that has tourettes. My niece was lucky her teachers had taken some classes in dealing with children who have tourettes. What was real nice about this documentary was that it had children who were interested in all different things that children there age like to do. That even with having tourettes you are still just a child, a person who have the same dreams and aspirations that of other children their same age have.

Watching this documentary makes you want to just hug those children and never let them go.

I wish them the best of luck always.
