Tourette's Syndrome is now recognized as a common, lifelong condition and a ``model'' disorder reflecting the interaction of genetic vulnerability and environmental factors. Along with progress in research on Tourette's and other tic disorders, new approaches to treating this neuropsychiatric disturbance are now attracting wide interest among mental health workers. This book provides the broadest, most up-to-date account of this group of disorders, their features, symptoms, etiology and diagnosis, and various psychosocial disorders with similar symptoms. It also presents a variety of environmental and pharmacological therapeutic approaches that underscore areas of disagreement in the field, as well as new genetic, neurochemical and pharmacologic knowledge. Contributors to this work are all leading researchers or clinicians.
This user friendly guide provides information for educators and service providers working with students who have Tourette Syndrome. It not only develops broader awareness of the range of symptoms possible, but also presents a cohesive approach to managing and educating students with TS whether mild or severe. This book also includes a discussion of the episodic rage that is sometimes associated with TS.

Health & sickness -- Consumer Health --> Stuttering is an affliction that affects every ethnicity and every culture equally, some sixty million people worldwide. Five percent of children stutter. Typically this debilitating condition emerges when a child is between the ages of two and six. Twenty percent of these children will continue to stutter as adults. Although it is so pervasive, there is great misunderstanding about stuttering. Socially isolating those it strikes, the disorder prevents them from the kind of candid discussions that would help them gain an understanding of it. In turn, social isolation creates misconceptions. In Understanding Stuttering a writer who is both a practicing physician and former researcher on stuttering examines the medical roots of the problem and, hoping to bring alleviation, shares his findings. He defines stuttering as a medical condition that is neurologically based or inherited. In clear language he explains the basics of brain anatomy and function, tells of the latest scientific advances in diagnosis and treatment of stuttering, and explains the difference in acquired stuttering and Tourette syndrome. Using examples from his practice, he details effective treatments, including speech therapy and medications. He discusses the most promising new research and tells how the findings of this research will improve treatments and provide a possible cure. Understanding Stuttering concludes with practical tips on how to converse with those who stutter and lists organizations that provide additional information and support. Nathan Lavid, a former faculty member at the University of Southern California School of Medicine, is in private psychiatric practice in southern California.

When first published, this guide for parents of children and teens with Tourette syndrome (TS) was the only book to offer up-to-date information and advice for families. Now in an updated edition, CHILDREN WITH TOURETTE SYN¬DROME offers even more. There's new information on the latest research and medical developments in the field, and sections on education, legal rights, family life, daily care, and emotional issues are thoroughly revised. Written by leading experts in the field and ex¬perienced parents, this guide provides an excellent blend of professional expertise and empathetic advice. Families with newly diagnosed children find answers to their most pressing questions about this often perplex¬ing neurological disorder, as well as coping strategies and emotional support. The second edition includes new information about the effects of Tourette syndrome at different stages of development from childhood into adult¬hood. There's more on coexisting conditions such as obsessive-compulsive disorder, Asperger syndrome, and learning disabilities. The book also provides an overview of the biochemistry of TS, what to expect from a medical workup, as well as a discussion of more than 30 different drugs used to treat TS and related conditions. There are strategies for coping with many of the challenging characteristics of TS such as impulsivity, obsessive thoughts, attention and sleep problems, and difficulties with sensory integration. A new chapter on Habit Reversal Training (HRT) explains how this behavior intervention can help some people control tics. Parents find the latest on special education rights, and expanded information on how to design an appropriate education plan for their child. For families raising a child with TS, this com¬prehensive handbook gives them hope and relieves their sense of isolation. It's also essential reading for professionals and teachers who need to understand this complex disorder. Praise for the previous edition: “Provides parents with useful coping strategies while focusing on ways to encourage children to reach their highest potential.” —LIBRARY JOURNAL

This volume presents an encyclopedic account of the past decade's achievements in the study and treatment of Tourette Syndrome (TS) and associated behavioral and psychiatric disorders. More than 90 of the foremost authorities from all relevant basic science, clinical, and behavioral science disciplines highlight the major recent developments worldwide - from groundbreaking genetic and neurochemical research and studies using state-of-the-art neuroimaging technologies, to new concepts on the clinical spectrum and natural history of TS, increasing recognition of comorbid conditions, and improved strategies for pharmacotherapy and psychosocial management. The contributors assess the practical utility of current diagnostic criteria for TS and present extensive data on its natural history, its range of clinical manifestations, and its associated disorders. The findings indicate that the severity of TS varies widely among patients, that tics tend to diminish during adolescence and adulthood, and that comorbid conditions - such as obsessive-compulsive disorder and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder - are often the chief source of impairment. Much evidence suggests that these disturbances and the tics are manifestations of the same underlying diathesis. Noted investigators document significant findings on the mode of inheritance for TS, define the key methodological issues in genetic linkage studies, and describe molecular approaches to the search for the genetic locus for the syndrome. The book also includes new data implicating specific monoamine neurotransmitters and endogenous opioid peptides in the pathogenesis of TS. Other contributors present neuroimaging studies using MRI, PET, and SPECT to delineate brain mechanisms involved in TS. The book offers definitive guidelines on pharmacotherapy for tics and, particularly, for associated obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Of special note are the discussions on treatment of OCD with serotonin reuptake inhibitors and on use of clonidine and stimulants for ADHD with comorbid tics. Additional chapters explore the potential of novel drugs and of nutritional interventions such as megavitamin therapy. Full consideration is also given to the role of behavioral and psychosocial therapies and the educational management of children with TS. This volume is an indispensable resource for all clinicians and investigators involved in the treatment or study of neuropsychiatric disorders. It exemplifies the creative application of the full range of current neuroscience and behavioral methodologies to a complex and important syndrome.
Several chapters also address clinical work with adults with TS. User friendly and practical, the book includes three reproducible assessment tools.

Because traditional behaviorism overlooked function-altering behavior processes that are critical to understanding many behavior disorders, other theoretical models took the lead in the explanation of pathological human behavior. Current trends in behavior analysis, however, account for these processes, retuning behavior analysis to a strong position in this area of research. This book presents a cogent and comprehensive theory of behavior disorders from a behavior analytic perspective.
