    Did anyone see the HBO special "I have Tourettes but Tourettes doesn't have me?
    Writing from Montreal we do not get HBO without a satellite.
    If you have seen it, what was it like?
    Please respond.

    Hello Jill!

    I happen to have access to HBO Family Channel and let me tell you the half hour program was absolutely wonderful. The young people who participated in describing their Tourette were very mature in their understanding of the disorder, and presented their stories in a moving and charming manner.

    It is not clear at this time whether TSFC will have it available However the DVD can be ordered directly from TSA

    Hi there Jill

    We ordered it too for our chapter and showed it at our monthly meeting and it was really good. We encouraged the parents to bring their kids and several did. The show was very well done.

    I saw it at our local chapter meeting, also. It was well done, and I think it's a good "intro to Tourette's" - especially for educators or parents.

    I liked it. Overall, I liked the 'extra' stuff on the DVD as well. I wish they'd delved MORE into some of the other kids who only had brief spots on the show. They were all so great I wanted to know more about ALL of them. :D
