Ken Shyminsky, a former vice president of the Greater Toronto Chapter of the Tourette Syndrome Foundation of Canada, draws upon his personal experiences as a teacher and student with Tourette Syndrome to help children with TS and related disorders. He also has Tourette himself and is the founder of the website Neurologically Gifted.
“Hi, My Name is Nathan. I have Tourette Syndrome Plus” is a video presentation by our son, who is now 12 years old. Nathan talks about Tourette Syndrome, Attention Deficit Disorder and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. He describes each disorder and how they challenge him everyday. He shares what people around him can expect from him as well as what they can do to help him.
Nathan was diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome Plus when he was 5 years old. Since then Nathan has been active in spreading awareness to promote the understanding of his disorder. Thank you to Nathan for this contribution to Tourette Syndrome awareness. He truly is a brave, strong and caring boy. Please share his message with everyone.
