Living with Tourette & Tic Disorders: A Guide for Patients and Families (Tool Kit)

You or a family member have just received a new diagnosis of Tourette Syndrome or other Tic Disorder. The Tourette Association of America recognizes that it may have been a difficult journey to receive an accurate diagnosis.

This guide is meant to serve as a starting point for you. It will provide you with an overview of Tics, Tourette Syndrome, and other Tic Disorders, addressing several areas of living with these conditions. Since TS and Tic Disorders may present and impact each person differently, you can use the information in this kit as it pertains to your needs or that of your family member.

If you would like to learn more about a specific area, we encourage you to visit the Tourette Association website for a comprehensive library of resources or contact TAA by email or phone.
