Have both tourette syndrome & an autistic spectrum disorder, although tourette syndrome is not an autistic spectrum disorder itself. Dr, l gave you a site that uses complementary & alternative medicine for management. For "mainstream" medical & behavioral therapies, see tsa.Org. A neuropsychological evaluation would be of great benefit to determine strengths & weaknesses in learning.
