Course Description
Lessons learned from this symposium about Tourette syndrome include comorbid disorders sometimes being more impairing than tics alone and how to avoid time-wasting and disappointed regimens. This symposium will give audience a better understanding of the development of the child brain. Changing life style may help a lot. Otherwise, deep brain stimulation may improve those refractory patients.

Learning Objectives

  1. Learn the whole scope of clinical manifestations of Tourette syndrome (TS), not just tics alone.
  2. Apply non-pharmacological and pharmacological managements appropriately, and the role of deep brain stimulation in refractory TS.

Impact Statements
This educational session helped me to identify changes I could make in my practice related to:

  1. Try non-pharmacological management and appropriate medicine for children with Tourette syndrome; and deep brain stimulation perhaps another choice for refractory patients.
  2. Avoid many irrelevant alternatives.
