Two disorders: Tourette's syndrome involves making involuntary movements, sounds or speech, sometimes associated with obsessive-compulsive disorder.
Asperger's syndrome involves difficulty reading & responding to social cues. Some as patients have unusual movements - arm flapping & others - but these are quite different from ts. Some people do have both conditions.
