  • It depends on the tic disorder. My son had what is called transient tic disorder (which is temporary) however, there is this kind as well http://www.righthealth.com/Health/What_Is_Tourette_Syndrome/-od-definition_adam_1%25252F0007331-s I would suggest taking him to a doctor to find out more. It could be something completely different.

  • Is he being treated by a neurologist? Tic disorders respond somewhat to medication. There is also a new treatment called deep brain stimulation.
