Tics are sudden, rapid motor movements (twitches, spasms) or verbal emissions (throat-clearing, blurted words). If a child has both motor and vocal tics, he is diagnosed with Tourette’s syndrome. Tics are generally experienced as involuntary, though they can be suppressed voluntarily for varying amounts of time. Here are some of our most popular stories explaining what Tourette’s looks like in children, and how to help.
