About the Project

Core Concept:

  • Tourette Syndrome is not usually portrayed in a good light. When I look at television shows or movies, a person with tourette’s is usually making overly exaggerated movements or cursing very loudly. I wish to bring light to what tourette’s really is and how people with it and people around it, live with it.

Who:

  • My boyfriend and his two brothers have the disorder and their mother is very knowledgeable about it. I also have a family counselor whom I visit regularly who may be able to share some knowledge and experience about the subject.

Where:

  • My boyfriend’s home and school as well as my counselors office.

What:

  • Tourette Syndrome is a disorder of the nervous system that can involve many different symptoms depending on the degree of the disorder.

Audience:

  • People who live with or have the disorder or anyone who wants to learn more about it.

How:

  • I will be active in communicating with my boyfriend, his family, and my counselor.

Why:

  • I want to shed better light on the subject because many people do not know exactly what it is and have incorrect assumptions about it.
