Lightbulb Education Strategies & Advocacy

just recently I have heard from many parents who are struggling to get needed 504 or IEP accomodations for their TS child(ren)

remember that TS is classified under IDEA under the Americans with Disabilities Act as "other health impaired" and so the accommodations are entitled by Law!!

The TSA has really helpful info

This month’s CNS Spectrums describes medication-related side effects (compulsivity and impulsivity) that can have important implication’s for understanding symptom classification and the neurobiology of disease (behavioral addictions); assesses subtypes of illness (tic-related OCD) with distinct presentations; highlights changes in our understanding of illnesses such as depression over time (drug-nonresponsive sadness), and describes unusual cases with NMDA receptor encephalitis with highly specific treatment response (immunomodulatory treatment).

Exclamation Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated With Streptococcal Infection

J Am Acad Child Adolesc Psychiatry. 2008 Aug 21.

Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated With Streptococcal Infection: A Case-Control Study Among Privately Insured Children.

Leslie DL, Kozma L, Martin A, Landeros A, Katsovich L, King RA, Leckman JF.

Dr. Leslie is with the Department of Health Administration and Policy, Medical University of South Carolina; Ms. Kozma is with the Department of Chemistry, Yale University; and Drs. Martin, Landeros, King, and Leckman and Ms. Katsovich are with the Child Study Center, Yale University School of Medicine.

Quote:
OBJECTIVE:: To assess whether antecedent streptococcal infection(s) increase the risk of subsequent diagnosis of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), Tourette syndrome (TS), other tic disorders, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), or major depressive disorder (MDD) in a national sample of privately insured children.
PubMed Abstract

Quote:
CONCLUSIONS:: These findings provide epidemiologic evidence that some pediatric-onset neuropsychiatric disorders, including OCD, tic disorders, ADHD, and MDD, may be temporally related to prior streptococcal infections. Whether this is the result of a nonspecific stress response or secondary to an activation of the immune system remains to be determined.

Default Tic disorders and ADHD - from Tourette Syndrome International Database Consortium ...

PubMed

Eur Child Adolesc Psychiatry. 2007 Jun;16 Suppl 1:15-23.
  • Erratum in:
  • Eur Child Adolesc Psychiatry. 2007 Dec;16(8):536.

Tic disorders and ADHD: answers from a world-wide clinical dataset on Tourette syndrome.

Freeman RD; Tourette Syndrome International Database Consortium.

Quote:
CONCLUSION: Subjects with TS have high rates of ADHD and complex associations with other disorders. Clinically the findings confirm other research indicating the importance of ADHD in understanding the behavioural problems often associated with the diagnosis of TS. Additional ADHD comorbidity should be taken into account in diagnosis, management, and training.
