“Front of the class” is an inspirational movie based on a true story of Brad Cohen, a child diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome, who defies and overcomes all odds to become a gifted teacher.
Tourette syndrome is a neurological disorder that starts in childhood. It involves unusual repetitive movements or unwanted sounds that can’t be controlled (tics). For instance, you may repeatedly blink your eyes, shrug your shoulders or jerk your head. In some cases, you might unintentionally blurt out offensive words” By Mayo Clinic Staff
