Tics & Tourette's Program

One of the most common yet overlooked and at times unrecognized movement disorders are "tics" in children. Our practice has a multidisciplinary approach to evaluation and management, using diet, behavioral therapy, habit reversal treatment, and vitamins prior to treatment, as well as standardized medicines.

We include neuropsychological evaluations as part of our treatment plan in order to target the cause of the tic.  A symptom may be a manifestation of an underlying disorder that is often masked or co-exists with the tics.
