Tourette Syndrome : is a Neurodevelopmental Disorder, the criteria for which are multiple motor tics & at least one vocal tic that have been present for a year, with onset before age 18. To help the pediatric neurologist diagnose your daughter's movement disorder, video some episodes to share during the consultation & list any other changes in her behavior, academics & peer interaction.
