DESCRIPTION:
(from A&E's press release, August 2018) A&E Network tells the remarkable stories and exceptional triumphs of families raising adolescents with Tourette Syndrome in the new six-part docuseries "Raising Tourette's" premiering Wednesday, August 15 at 10pm ET/PT immediately following the season 4 premiere of the Emmy-winning docuseries "Born This Way" at 8pm ET/PT. This powerful new series follows five families with children ranging in ages from 11 to 17. Like all adolescents, each child has aspirations, friends, rivals and homework, but they also all have Tourette Syndrome. While growing up is often challenging and unpredictable, these kids are resilient and thriving despite navigating an often-misunderstood disorder. From new schools and first dates to driving lessons and family vacations, the series showcases the often turbulent ups and downs these unique families face. Tourette Syndrome is one type of Tic Disorder. Tics are involuntary, repetitive movements and vocalizations. They are the defining feature of a group of childhood-onset, neurodevelopmental conditions known collectively as Tic Disorders. Individuals with Tourette Syndrome (TS) have had at least two motor tics and at least one vocal/phonic tic in some combination over the course of more than a year.
