Tics and Tourette's Clinical Overview

The Tics and Tourette's Clinical and Research Program is a unique program dedicated to the enhanced understanding, evaluation, and treatment of children, adolescents, and adults with tics, Tourette's Disorder, and other related disorders, such as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), and Mood and Anxiety Disorders.

The program provides comprehensive evaluations, consultations, and state-of-the-art treatment, as well as opportunities for participation in research studies that include new treatments.

Our Clinical Services

Treatment is conducted by members of a specialty team and includes state-of-the-art medication and psychosocial interventions, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy. Habit reversal therapy, a new, scientifically sound behavior therapy is available for eligible children and adolescents. Individual therapy, family therapy, and parent guidance are also available. Some children and adolescents need coordination of services within the school and community, or outreach and advocacy, which can also be provided. Staff is also available to conduct public education about tic disorders and the related problems.
