Tourette Syndrome: How To Overcome It

ParentCircle

As the recent Rani Mukherjea starrer Hichki is getting rave reviews and laughing all the way to the box office, the central theme of the movie, Taurette Syndrome is getting the limelight too.

Pronounced as Too Ret, this neuro-psychiatric disorder is also known as TS or just Taurette’s. This disorder usually sets in early childhood. It is characterised by multiple motor tics and at least one vocal tic.

Some of the famous personalities with the syndrome are: David Beckham, Dr Samuel Johnson, Howard Hughes, Jamie Grace Harper, Jim Eisenreich, Dan Ackroyd, Dash Mihok, James Michael Eisenreich, Marc Summers, Michael Wolff, Tim Howard, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
