About Tourette:

  • Tourette is part of a spectrum of hereditary, childhood-onset, neurodevelopmental conditions referred to as Tic Disorders.
  • These conditions affect both children and adults, causing them to make sudden, uncontrollable movements and/or sounds called tics (e.g. head bobbing, arm jerking, shoulder shrugging and grunting).
  • Non-tic features, such as Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and learning difficulties, often develop in affected individuals.
  • Symptoms in Tic Disorders can range from mild to severe and, in some cases, can be self-injurious, debilitating and markedly reduce quality of life.
  • While some treatments are available for people with Tourette and other Tic Disorders, approaches to care are inconsistent and medications are often ineffective.
