Motor and vocal tics: Diagnostic criteria for tourette syndrome includes the presence of 2 or more motor tics and 1 or more vocal tics that start before the age of 21 and have been present for at least 12 months. The tics may come and go and may be simple or complex. There also should not be any medical cause for the tics.
