On the show – which will air at 6:30 a.m., 9 a.m., 10:30 a.m., noon and 1:30 p.m. both days – Taneli will answer questions such as “What is Tourette Syndrome?” “What are the symptoms?” and “How is it treatable?” Fleischman will talk about her personal experience with Tourette, her connection to NJCTS and her book, “Emily’s Tic,” which was released by Amazon.com and other publishing outlets in February.

Fleischman also will address questions such as “When did you first notice you might have had Tourette Syndrome?” “What is it like?” “Have you dealt with ignorance or negative reactions from your peers?” and “What do you recommend for other young people with Tourette?”
