A 21-year-old member asked:

Is it important to treat tourette syndrome early?

Yes: It's best to diagnose and treat early for best results later on.
Dr. Kevin Windisch
Pediatrics 25 years experience
No: There is no cure for tourette syndrome. If the child is doing well then there is no reason to treat. If the child is having difficulty with peers or self esteem then medical therapy is of value. Don't undervalue hypnosis as a theraputic alternative for this disorder.

Treatment includes proper diagnosis (PANDA's?) counseling, education and medication.
