Tourette Syndrome

What is Tourette Syndrome?

Tourette Syndrome is a neurological disorder characterized by the presence of various involuntary motions and uncontrollable vocalizations. These motions and vocalizations are referred to as “tics.” Tics are divided into two categories: simple and complex. The more common “simple” tics involve sudden, brief movements, occurring in a single, isolated fashion (ex. eye blinking, grimacing, yelping ). Complex tics occur in coordinated patterns of successive movements that involve several muscle groups (ex. jumping, touching others, self-harming behaviors).
