Our aim is to raise money for Tourettes Action and hopefully raise awareness of Tourettes syndrome .
Our story ...our son/brother Ethan was diagnosed with Tourettes since his diagnosis we have learned alot about the condition and would like to help others understand and get the support they deserve.
TS is often misunderstood as a condition which makes people swear or say socially inappropriate things . Although it is true that coprolalia ( the clinical term of involuntary swearing ) is a symptom of TS it only effects a minority of people 90% of people with TS do not have coprolalia . It is estimated that TS effects one school child in every 100 and more than 300,000 children and and adults in the uk live with the condition . Children generally start to tic between ages 5 and 7 but can start as young as 3 years old
