As many of you already know my son Aiden has some complex behaviour issues and has in 2019 been diagnosed with tics and tourette syndrome. We knew little of the condition other than the stereotypes portrayed in the media.
Through internet searches we came across Tourettes action who have helped our understanding immensely with the information available through their website. Aiden has himself found their website a great source of inspiration in creating a presentation to raise awareness of his condition within school. They have provided him with tools to help quickly explain his condition to adults who may be unfamiliar with his conditions.
Tourette syndrome is a widely misunderstood condition and Tourettes Action is essential for sufferers and their carers.
This is not a headline charity, people do not automatically think of them when deciding which charity to support. For this reason i am running 2 marathons on their behalf on the 5th and 26th of April. I would appreciate any support big or small.
