Tourette Syndrome isn’t normally portrayed in everyday media, and when it is, it is not normally in a good light. There may be some words running through your heard when you hear the word tourette’s. For Joey and Michelle Nath, it’s family. Michelle is Joey’s mother as well as a mother to two other sons whom also have tourette syndrome. It wasn’t easy in the beginning when Joey was diagnosed, as Michelle did not know enough about the neurological disorder, and Joey was having a rather difficult time with teachers for the same reason. His tics were, and still are, minor motor tics, which are involuntary movements of different muscles in the body. It is not very common to see and may be difficult to understand. A family dealing with tourette syndrome has it’s own challenges, but it isn’t so different.
