I saw a new documentary called  Different is the New Normal  this week.  The documentary was produced by the parents of a young man with Tourette syndrome, and quite frankly, it is the best documentary I have ever seen in terms of conveying what children and their families may be living with.  If you want to gain some awareness and perspective on what life may be like for your student, I encourage you to watch it.

The documentary will air again on Tuesday, September 20, 2011 at 10 pm (EST) on NJTV (public television in NJ) then again Thursday, September 22nd at 4 am (EST), Sunday, September 25th at 5 am (EST) ) and Sunday, September 25th at 11 pm (EST), Tuesday, September 27th at 10:30 pm (EST) on WLIW21 (public television in metropolitan and suburban NYC and NJ)

After the broadcast, it will be on this website for a limited time: http://watch.thirteen.org/.
