The Student Experience with Tourette Syndrome

Ellen Meyers, M.S., M.Ed., Tourette Association Education Committee member, discusses an interactive exercise which has been proven to sensitize individuals to the difficulties students face on a daily basis.  A 4 minute clip from the Emmy winning “I Have Tourette’s but Tourette’s Doesn’t Have Me” in which students discuss their experience living with TS symptoms provides first-hand knowledge of how symptoms impact their lives.

This clip was taken from the DVD “Tourette Syndrome in the Classroom, School and Community” which is available through the Tourette Association. Funding for this DVD, “Tourette Syndrome in the Classroom, School and Community” was made possible by the cooperative agreement award number 1U38DD000727-01 from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the presentation was generously supported by the Quantum Foundation, Palm Beach County, FL.
