Different Is The New Normal: Living A Life with Tourette's Previous Broadcasts
KQED 9: Wed, Oct 10, 2012 -- 11:00 PM
This program tracks the trials and triumphs of Ariel Small, a 17-year-old living with uncontrollable physical and vocal tics caused by Tourette Syndrome. Narrated by actor Michael J. Fox, it reveals an acutely personal first-hand account of Tourette's through Ariel's eyes. With Ariel's permission, his mother documents their emotional journey to overcome the obstacles of Tourette's in order to raise awareness about the neurobiological disorder, dispel the misperceptions and social stigma associated it, and help others living with the condition. Along the way, Ariel meets James Durbin, the American Idol finalist whose own battle with bullying and intolerance inspired the film's title.
