In brief: Multimodal manage-

ment of tics that interfere with daily function, associated ADHD, OCD & learning disorders = psychotropic medications, behavioral, family & psychotherapies & environmental manipulations at school/work, home & community.
"Teaching the Tiger" is a good book. Join tsa-usa.org. A fact sheet on Tourette Syndrome, www. ninds.nih.gov/disorders/tourette/detail_tourette.htm, also gives good resources.
