Jaylen Arnold is your typical 9 year-old Lakeland, Florida boy with an exception. He has Tourette's Syndrome. Tourette Syndrome is a combination of involuntary movements and involuntary noises, which we call "tics". They tend to start in childhood and often become less severe into adulthood. With this disability, Jaylen has had his share of bullying, however has turned it around into a fight against bullying.
Bullying No Way is Jaylen's motto! He has spent time, energy and support talking to schools, parents and anyone that will listen about the dangers and hurtfulness of bullying. The long lasting emotional scars and the fact that children don't have to take it anymore.
Discovery Health Channel is airing a special on Tourette's Syndrome - "Tourette's Uncovered." Jaylen Arnold is one of four children that will be featured. Check your local television listings.
Premieres Monday, September 13, at 9 PM (ET/PT)
