Tourette Syndrome.
Look, Kathy
Tourette Syndrome has a history of being misdiagnosed or undiagnosed due to its unusual and complex symptoms. This paper describes: the symptoms of Tourette Syndrome; its etiology; age of onset; therapeutic methods, such as drug therapy, psychotherapy, diet control, and hypnosis; educational implications; and employment prospects. Several suggestions are outlined for teachers to use in working with students with Tourette Syndrome, focusing on stress avoidance, oral testing, resource room use for math study, motor problems, and improvement of self-image and peer relations.
