Secluded in upstate New York, a facility known as Camp Tic-a-Palooza welcomes young people with Tourette Syndrome. This ABC News program profiles several camp attendees, focusing on the challenges, triumphs, and emotional impact of living with TS. Ten-year-old Sid's symptoms include frequently sticking out his middle finger. Amanda displays a menagerie of vocal tics, often hissing, barking, or roaring at others. More troubling are 13-year-old Isabella's self-injurious tics, which obscure her sweet spirit and creativity. With perspective from family members and video diaries, the program also includes commentary from Dr. Jonathan Mink, Co-Chair of the TSA Scientific Advisory Board, and Dr. Jerome Bubrick, Clinical Instructor of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at the NYU School of Medicine.
