This session will help to recognise tics and related behaviours in children.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this session you will be able to:

  • Evaluate a young person with tics and recognise the clinical features of Gilles de la Tourette syndrome (GTS)
  • Describe the distinction between tics and other kinds of movement problems
  • List the mental health conditions intimately related and often associated with GTS
  • Describe the way that clinical professionals are likely to adapt their advice for the child
  • Offer advice, understanding and knowledge of how to manage and when and where to refer
