Front of the Class

I have been very interested in seeing the movie Front of the Class ever since we first started suspecting that Monster Man has Tourette Syndrome.  I have yet to be able to see it, but I have been told that it is a very heartwarming story about the true struggles faced by Brad Cohen.  Instead of letting his tics control him and hold him back, Brad Cohen decided to go the direct opposite route and become the teacher that he wished he'd had as a student struggling to control his tics.  I've been told by many both within the National Tourette Syndrome Association's Facebook page and by contacts I know outside of the TSA that this is an inspiring story and a must-see for those affected by Tourette Syndrome.

We do not have cable television, so we seem to miss the movie every time that it is shown.  We have not been lucky enough to find it available to rent, either.  I am finally going to break down and purchase a copy on DVD.  That way, we can use it to educate others about TS as well as to enjoy the movie ourselves.

  1. Too bad you can't get to see it any other way Allie, but at least having your own copy means you can watch it whenever you want.
