Tim Howard and the USA Soccer Team: Did Tourette’s Help The Team? #netde #edude

Great article from The Daily Beast about how Tourette’s actually helps athletes like Tim Howard.  I see this sometimes with my own son.  He is there one second, and gone the next!  I know certain people who have had to try and catch him at times and I’m sure they were amazed at his quickness.  This is, of course, a shout-out to the folks at that charter school in the County of Kent.

There are so many aspects of TS that haven’t even been discovered yet.  I look forward to more articles like this.  Tim Howard is one of the biggest names in the world right now, and I applaud his ability to openly talk about this TS and use it to his advantage.  I think this is a goal any parent has for a child with a disability.

I am a proud parent of a son with Tourette's Syndrome and several other co-morbidities. I write on this blog to educate other parents so they know a bit more about not only special education, but all the really bad things that are happening with public schools in Delaware and the USA. We are all in this together, and if our children aren't able to advocate for themselves it's up to us parents! We need to stop letting companies run our schools, and demand our children get a proper education. Our Departments of Education in our states have become weak with fear from the bullying US DOE, and we need to take back our schools!
