Outgrowing the Child Neurologist: Medical Transition in Tourette Syndrome

Presenter: Lawrence W. Brown, MD

Dr. Brown will discuss the general goals of transition from the pediatric to the adult system of care with emphasis on the child neurologist's role in the process. It must be recognized that transition is a distinct, long term effort rather than just a final act of transfer to an adult practitioner. Tourette syndrome is complicated because so many youths have co-morbid conditions that often have a greater impact on independence and quality of life than the tics which define the disorder. Since transition planning has not been a major focus for many clinicians, it is important for families to be knowledgeable, help prepare themselves and their children, and advocate effectively with their providers to insure maximal success.
