Thousands of young people are diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome (TS) each year. TS is a disorder of the neurological system, causing uncontrollable sounds or movements called tics. TS peaks "when young people are most vulnerable to the challenges of early adolescence," explains psychology professor Douglass Woods in USA TODAY, the Nation's No. 1 Newspaper. Symptoms can make school and everyday life very difficult. The good news is that scientists are gaining understanding of how TS works in the brain. While TS still has no cure, research is leading to more effective treatments. In this book, you'll read the stories of teenagers who struggled with TS and find out how they and their families dealt with the symptoms. You'll learn what causes TS, what can trigger tics, and what treatments can help relieve symptoms. Learning about this disorder is the best way to help yourself, a friend, or a family member live and thrive with TS.
