Dr. Jeff Jacobs answered:

How is Tourette's inherited?

Multifactorial

Genetic
Although clearly a genetic disorder, the mode of inheritence for Tourette's is complex, involving multiple defective genes, and perhaps even an interplay of genetic and environmental factors. There is also clearly a genetic association between the triad of Tourette's, OCD, and ADHD, and I generally screen patients I diagnose with Tourette's for concurrent ADHD and/or OCD.

Dr. Johanna Fricke answered:

What are signs of ocd tourette's?

Separate those

Tourette_syndrome
Criteria for Tourette Syndrome are Multiple motor tics and at least one vocal tic for at least a year with no tic-free period of more than 2 months. Obsessions are recurrent thoughts that cause distress because they are seen as inappropriate or intrusive. Compulsions are repetitive behaviors done to neutralize the anxiety-provoking obsessions. ADHD completes the classic triad.

Is Tourette's genetic?

Yes, it is genetic

Genetic
Tourette's Disorder is among the more strongly genetic disorders with a strong behavioral presentation. Interestingly, and not yet well understood, it often co-occurs in in families with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), with men more likely to present with Tourette's and women with OCD, although both conditions can be present in the same individual. The exact genes involved remain unknown.

How to tell if I have tourette's or ocd?

See a doctor

Tourettes
There often can be what appears to be OCD in a person prior to the onset of the tics. If there are motor and verbal tics, then the diagnosis of Tourette syndrome is clear. There can still be obsessions and compulsions. Seeing a pyschiatrist or neurologist is the best option.

Dr. Gregory Mosolf answered:

What are the chances of Tourette's being passed on to a child, from a parent?

Some

Rollerblading
There is a chance of it being passed to the child especially if the child is male. On the other hand the child might not develop Tourette's Syndrome, but rather OCD or a milder tic disorder (or no problems at all). In other words they may have some of the other behavioral problems associated with Tourette's. In some families it is inherited more strongly than in others.

Dr. Johanna Fricke answered:

Does cbt work for tourette's?

For the OCD

Tourette_syndrome
Tourette Syndrome, ADHD & OCD are hand-in-glove. A specific form of cognitive-behavioral therapy called exposure-and-response-prevention is used for the OCD. Oppositional Defiant Disorder often accompanies the ADHD. It is treated with behavior-modification & behavior management training for parents. Social skills group therapy & tutoring for associated learning disabilities are often needed.
