Yes: Tourette syndrome is defined as having the presence of multiple motor plus vocal tics lasting longer than 1 year with onset prior to 18 years old and not caused by another medical condition or medication. Adhd, ocd, anxiety and learning disorders are commonly associated with tourette syndrome.
