*Ever wonder what OTHER people's tics sound like???

*Ever find that people are MUCH better at not reacting to your tics when they've had an opportunity to "get used" to them???

*Ever want to "TRADE IN" your tics for others???

*Ever find that a GOOD SENSE OF HUMOUR makes Living In Disorder a whole lot easier and fun???

 

For all these reasons and more, here for your listening pleasure are a whole collection of vocal and phonic tics to TICkle your funnybone!!

My deepest thanks and appreciation is extended to those who have "donated" to the museum...........it shows a lot of self-acceptance, bravery, generousity, and strength of character to do so.

My thanks also go to the many teachers and doctors that have creatively used this museum to train others in Tourette Syndrome

Enjoy.......why not show off YOUR tic too??
