Tourette and Developmental Disabilities

Presenter: Lawrence W. Brown, MD

Tourette Syndrome is defined solely by the chronic presence of motor and verbal tics. But large epidemiological studies have clearly demonstrated that the presence of other neurodevelopmental and behavioral disorders are so common as to be the rule, not the exception. Some like OCD appear to be directly linked genetically, while others are truly co-morbid liken autism, intellectual disability and tics in unique genetic conditions, where disturbed brain networks in the growing child disrupt the same systems affected in primary Tourette Syndrome. Yet others interact in ways not always fully understood such as ADHD, anxiety disorders, sleep problems, etc. this lecture will review the current scientific understanding of the interactions between tics and these developmental disabilities.
