This week we are talking Tourette Syndrome. Lou talks to Lydia Roberts, mum to Ruari and her twin daughters. Ruari is neurodivergent. He has ADHD and Tourette's Syndrome. Lydia is a brilliant parent advocate and actively works to educate the community about Tourette Syndrome. The episode opens with a sound bit from an ABC Perth radio segment where Lydia and Ruari articulate the world of Tourette. Ruari's words are absolutely imperative listening. He describes his tics, how they feel, when they occur, what it's like for him. It's such a wonderful insight.
