Tourette's Disorder Treatment

Tourette’s Disorder is diagnosed in childhood or adolescense. Approximately half of all children will develop it by age 7 and the vast majority by age 14. Boys are three times more likely to be diagnosed with Tourette’s than girls.

The primary features of Tourette’s Disorder are the presence of motor and vocal tics. Tics are involuntary, repetitive, sudden and stereotypic movement or vocalizations. Motor tics may be simple, neck jerking and shoulder shrugging, or complex, facial gestures. Vocal tics can also be simple, coughing and throat clearing, and complex, spoken words and phrases.

In addition to Tourette’s Disorder, a child can also have a chronic vocal or motor tic disorder and a transient tic disorder.

Tic disorders respond primarily to a set of behavioral techniques known as habit reversal training.
