This fun-to-read storybook simplifies and normalizes a complicated childhood condition, Tourette Syndrome. When read aloud, other children can identify why a peer may be treated differently and begin to empathize with them. In addition, children whose conditions set them apart as being different begin to feel accepted and safe. Book includes a Kids’ Quiz to reinforce new information and Ten Tips for Teachers to provide additional facts and ideas for teacher use. In Taking Tourette Syndrome to School, Megan’s story helps children understand that her tics are not something she can control, but are part of her life.
