Front of the Class is a 2008 American drama film based on the book by Brad Cohen, Front of the Class: How Tourette Syndrome Made Me the Teacher I Never Had, co-authored by Lisa Wysocky.
The book was made into a Hallmark Hall of Fame TV movie starring newcomer James Wolk—a 2007 University of Michigan graduate—and featuring Treat Williams and Emmy Award-winning actress Patricia Heaton as Cohen's parents; the movie aired on CBS on December 7, 2008.
Brad Cohen's story starts when he is a young boy and his mother helps doctors to realize that he has Tourette syndrome. With his mother's help and the support of his school principal, Brad eventually becomes an award-winning teacher.
Thanks to his mother never giving up, Brad is a success story and shares his success with everyone around him.
