Darin M Bush has written “Tiger Trails: An Unconventional Introduction to Tourette’s Syndrome.”
It is an introduction to TS+, a shorthand term for Tourette Syndrome when it is associated with other issues, for example Obsessive-Compulsive disorder (OCD) and ADHD.
The book is meant to be a simple guide to the definitions of this new, and sometimes confusing, vocabulary that surrounds these children, adults and teachers who want to help.
Darin Bush has worked with the Tourette’s Syndrome community in various roles for twenty years. He has tutored, lectured, taught classes, run workshops, led panels and facilitated support groups. He worked with the Tourette’s associations in the United States and Canada.
Bush has Tourette’s, OCD and ADHD. He says in the preface that he tries to write books to give people the right vocabulary — “words for the first 90 minutes of the TS conversation” after a diagnosis.
He lectures on the personal experience of neurological disorders and leads workshops using theater improvisation tools to open up discussion of TS. He says he is walking proof that education and self-awareness of neurological disorders greatly improves the quality of life for people with Tourette.
