You're not alone
Sometimes the struggle of living with Tourette’s can seem to be yours and yours alone. And often as a parent of a child with Tourette Syndrome there can be times when you feel you are to blame for your child’s behaviour; or you feel helpless when you are unable to help your child when he or she is in pain.
These are very real feelings and issues that many of us in the Tourette’s community have experienced.
Here you will find a series of videos featuring children, teenagers and adults with Tourette Syndrome, as well as parents and siblings, talking about life when you tic.
