Tic Disorders: A Guide for Parents and Professionals

Uttom Chowdhury and Tara Murphy

Jessica Kingsley Publishers


191 pages



Tics are involuntary rapid recurrent non-rhythmic movement--motor tics--or sounds--vocal tics--that are sudden and purposeless, say Chowdhury and Murphy, and tic disorders in children can range from brief episodes of a single motor tic to chronic multiple tics, typically referred to as Tourette syndrome. In a guide for parents of children with tic disorders and for teachers and other professionals who are responsible for them, they cover tics and Tourette syndrome, management, co-occurring features and conditions, and parenting and family life.
