Produced by a person with Tourette syndrome, this film's purpose is to help create a better understanding of what it is like for a person to experience the disorder. Many with TS have agreed that the video provides an unsurpassed inside view of "how it feels" to experience the tics and obsessive-compulsive symptoms associated with Gilles de la Tourette syndrome.
The movie also presents a look into the history of the disorder and the treatment of people with TS in the past. This historical information reveals the roots of many misconceptions that exist today about Tourette's.
Although every person with Tourette syndrome experiences different symptoms (and very few people have all of them), there are many commonly-found symptoms that are addressed in detail in this program.
Because individual cases of Gilles de la Tourette syndrome can vary greatly in their symptoms and severity, the producer of this film makes no claims to speak for anyone else regarding their experiences with the disorder.
All monies from this film website will go to support Camp Twitch and Shout, a camp for kids with Tourette syndrome.
