Tourette Syndrome is often accompanied
by another co-existing disorder.

Defined as a neurological condition that causes involuntary sounds and movements. Signs and symptoms of Tourette syndrome typically show up between ages 2 and 12, with the average being around 7 years of age. Males are about three to four times more likely than females to develop Tourette syndrome. Two types of tics; vocal tics are rare but can occur (sniffing, throat clearing, grunting, hooting and shouts) and motor (eye blinking, jaw movements, head bobbing/jerking) tics.

Children
