Intended to be read to classmates of the child with Tourette syndrome and with 12 full-page illustrations, this reassuring book escorts classmates as well as the child through basic facts about it.

Classmates learn that Tourette tics are of various types and always involve impaired muscle control, (thus reflect sensory processing impairments), aren’t contagious, and other aspects of them. The book also features tips for educators and a fun quiz for classmates and the child.
