material that might help educate friends or classmates of children with 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..."
