Tic Disorder/Tourettes

If your child has been diagnosed with Tic Disorder or Tourettes Syndrome, you may be struggling to know what to do next. The social and emotional stress of having verbal and/or motor tics may be affecting your child’s self-esteem and self-confidence. Academic and social functioning can be affected as well. Perhaps you are concerned about him/her becoming more anxious or depressed.

You are not alone and we can help you and your child. Many children with Tourette’s or Tic Disorder live happy, healthy lives. They are successful at school, are happy and have good friends.

Our expert clinicians are trained in Habit Reversal Therapy that has proven to reduce tics in children suffering from this condition. This along with more general Cognitive-Behavioral techniques yields very positive results. By working with you and your child, treatment is generally short-term and very effective.
