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 Tourette Syndrome (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 the “Stand Up for Tourette Syndrome” video with children, teachers, friends and family to build awareness of Tourette Syndrome. The National Tourette Syndrome Association (TSA) also offers a free downloadable teacher’s guide that can be used in elementary and middle school classrooms as a resource for discussion, activities and education.

“Stand Up for Tourette Syndrome” is also available with Spanish subtitles at LEVANTAN para el SÍNDROME DE TOURETTE.

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