Children (0-12)

Symptoms of Tourette Syndrome (tics) tend to emerge between the ages of 5-7 years and often increase in frequency and severity between the ages of 8-12 years. In addition to the medical and behavioral challenges that come hand-in-hand with TS, children also face challenging social and educational situations, which can be stressful.

Tourette is part of me, but it doesn’t define me.
