What is Tourette Syndrome?
Tourette’s syndrome is a condition that causes a person to make involuntary sounds and movements called tics.
It usually starts during childhood, but the tics and other symptoms usually improve after several years and sometimes go away completely.
There’s no cure for Tourette’s syndrome, but treatment can help manage symptoms.
People with Tourette’s syndrome may also have obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) or learning difficulties.https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/tourettes-syndrome/
