Discover what happens when one school finally gives him a chance. Brad Cohen's resilience and determination changed his life. His story may change yours.

We bought this as a gift for a granddaughter who has Tourette's syndrome. She loved it. It meant a lot to her to see someone with the same problems achieve success.Published 1 month ago by Mary Zubricky
