A parent turns up to playgroup and the child she’s bringing won’t enter the building.

Tourettes: An Interview With Advocate Paul Stevenson.

Posted by:

It’s Tourettes Awareness month and I must confess to not knowing as much as I would like to know about the neurological difference that can provide great challenges to those affected by it.

We have all seen the stereotypical verbal tics some people with Tourettes can display, we may even have laughed along with them in tv shows as they blurted swear words and random phrases.

Sadly, due to ignorance of the public perception of Tourettes , the physical tics are often ...

As an autistic and mother of autistic children I once allowed my now ex partner to discreetly film my sons meltdown.

In the three minute video I was hit thirty three times, my sons distress was complete and it was heartbreaking to see.
