Description

Tourette Syndrome (TS) tics are sudden, intermittent, repetitive, unpredictable, purposeless, nonrhythmic, involuntary movements or sounds. Tics that produce movement are called “motor tics,” while tics that produce sound are called “vocal tics” or “phonic tics.” Tics can be either simple or complex. The most important thing to understand about the tics associated with Tourette Syndrome is they are the result of a neuropsychiatric condition. The sounds and behaviours are involuntary and are not being done by choice. Tourette syndrome can often come with a package of other syndromes so in addition to TS my son has OCD, anxiety, ADHD and low level depression as well. While some medications are available to help with these syndromes they do not completely take them away and there is no cure. My son was diagnosed with TSplus at the age of eight years old. He and I, Micheline Ryckman, have decided that we’d like to try to raise more awareness for people who, like him, with suffer with real mental health concerns. In addition we also wanted to try to give back to an organization that works hard to support people with TS here in Canada, tourette.ca.  All of the profit from the sale of this will be donated to Tourette Canada. We hope you’ll consider supporting us through this endeavour by purchasing one of the items or even just joining us by sharing this story, painting and products with others.
