I Have Tourette’s but Tourette’s Doesn’t Have Me

I Have Tourette’s but Tourette’s Doesn’t Have Me is a documentary about several very special children with Tourette Syndrome who live in a world that very rarely understands them. TS is a neurological disorder characterized by uncontrollable movements and vocalizations referred to as motor and vocal “tics.” In the film, these children talk openly about the conflicts they face each day as they struggle, like all children, to fit in. There is a wonderful moral and social message to be learned from this documentary for all students as they meet and begin to view the lives of these young people.
