[n.b. some of the International Contacts they've listed don't have website links. I have those elsewhere though and will add them when I can, although I'm probably not going to be posting too often. Also if anyone needs anything in particular, please contact me because it's likely that if it was worth saving, then I have it.]

I wasn't sure exactly where to put this on the forum, but it's a very interesting article that some people who visit here might find useful reading.

These are just a few of the links on the first site above that Chemar has listed. Over the years I found them most helpful. It is a huge site so worth checking the *site map* for specific information.

Tourette Syndrome - Plus : Site Map and Search

Primer on Tourette's Syndrome

Chart of Common Tics (PDF)
"Note: This list is not all-inclusive. Furthermore, any behavior or symptom may have alternative explanations in a child who has TS and other diagnoses such as Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder and/or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Differentially diagnosing any one symptom cannot be made without further study or information. Teachers or school personnel should contact the child's parents and treating professionals for assistance and guidance." [quoting Leslie Packer]

Default Health Insurance - from TSA-USA

HEALTH INSURANCE
TSA Resources

Quote:
Unfortunately, many people with TS are experiencing difficulty in obtaining health insurance, or appropriate reimbursement for the TS related health care they receive under their existing insurance plans. TSA is addressing this issue on the National level by monitoring health insurance legislation and lobbying for changes in the law to ensure that people with TS gain better access to health insurance coverage.
