You Can Download This Video!
Every day more and more kids are realizing that teasing and bullying have no place in classrooms, schools and communities. Kids are realizing they can be more than bystanders…they can STAND UP and “do the right thing”.

In this terrific video the kids STAND UP for TOURETTE SYNDROME by helping Luke, a young boy with TS explain his TS to a group of kids who have been acting really mean to him. Luke tells them all about having TS, and by the time he is finished the mean kids have learned about TS and…they apologize!
Please share this video with children, teachers, friends and family as we build awareness of Tourette Syndrome.

As the kids in the video say “EVERYBODY STAND UP FOR TOURETTE SYNDROME!”

An excerpt from Matthew and the Tics:
 "Matthew had many tics. A tic is when a part of your face or body makes movements that you don't want it to make. At first, Matthew was just blinking his eyes a lot. His mother took him to an eye doctor, but the doctor couldn't find anything wrong with his eyes..."
