Tourette's syndrome is an incurable, inherited brain defect, affecting about 1-2% of all children and adults. Tourette ruins the childhood for many children, as neither the parents, the physician nor the school knows the disease. The many tics and rituals, which are the main symptoms of Tourette - often combined with ADHD - means beatings and being ridiculed every day in the school. The teacher, who doesn't know Tourette's syndrome, maybe believes that the child is stupid or lazy. The poor child becomes the loneliest boy/girl in the world, with suicidal thoughts and self-destructive behaviour. But there is a solution for the child, the family and the school. Knowledge. This book contains matter of fact knowledge on the nature of the disease, its symptoms and course. It has practical suggestions to solving the daily life problems, and how to support the self-esteem of your child. A Tourette child is not just a patient. Surprisingly, the disease also implies a great inner strength, and many Tourette children end up in exciting, creative jobs in marketing, music or art. And there is no one with a better love of order than a person with Tourette's syndrome.
