On the Red Dot focuses on the plight of persons with special needs and their families in "A Different Beat". The three-part series zooms in on the challenges parents face in raising a child with special needs and how they try to provide them with what's necessary to lead productive and meaningful lives. The stories show how such individuals can indeed contribute to society in their own way when given support and love from those around them. A Different Beat 3 - At the age of 10, Jeremy Goh was diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome, a disorder that causes involuntary tics. Growing up, he was ostracised and mocked for being different, and even lost jobs because of his condition. Fast forward 30 years, and the tics are still with him. They've grown worse but Jeremy doesn't allow them to stop him from achieving his dreams. With the help of his loved ones, he's finally able to reach past Tourette's and grasp the life he's always dreamed of.
