About Tourette Syndrome and Tic Disorders
 
Tourette Syndrome is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by sudden, involuntary movements and/or sounds called tics. They can include eye blinking, head jerking and facial movements ó throat clearing, sniffing and tongue clicking.
 
The involuntary utterance of obscene words is called coprolalia , and itís much rarer than people think: Only 10 percent of people diagnosed with Tourette experience these symptoms.
 
There is no cure for Tourette. The cause also remains unknown, but it is thought to involve genetic, neurological and environmental factors that can be treated.
 
Tourette is underdiagnosed. Many children, parents, teachers and even physicians donít fully understand TS, which can lead to bullying, a lack of community support, an improper diagnosis, lack of quality education, and a host of other issues that impair the quality of life for someone with TS.
