Summary
"Tourette Syndrome: The Facts explains the causes of the syndrome, how it is diagnosed, and how to cope if you or a relative has been recently diagnosed. It provides information on the treatment and therapies that are available, and advice on how individuals can manage their symptoms. It clearly explains the different presentations that can affect individuals, covering a spectrum from very mild to more uncommon, severe forms of TS, and also discusses disorders that can be mistaken for TS." "This second edition also contains new chapters focusing on 'education, employment, empowerment' and famous and successful people who have achieved their goals despite their diagnosis." "Essential reading for Tourette sufferers, their relatives, and friends, Tourette Syndrome: The Facts will also be of use to clinicians, GPs, schoolteachers, and anyone seeking an accessible introduction to the disorder."--BOOK JACKET
