What is Tourette Syndrome?
Tourette Syndrome (TS) is a neurodevelopmental disorder that becomes evident in early childhood or adolescence. It is part of the spectrum of Tic Disorders and is characterized by motor and vocal tics.
Tourette Syndrome and other Tic Disorders are not rare. The current estimates are that 1 out of every 160 children between the ages of 5-17 in the United States has TS and that 1 out of every 100 children has TS or another Tic Disorder.
Some Tic Disorders may be transient, while others will persist into adolescence and adulthood.
It is common for people with Tourette Syndrome to be affected by another co-occurring condition.
Some co-occurring conditions are Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD).
There is no cure for Tourette Syndrome, but thanks to years of dedicated research, there are various treatment options.
