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.
