Tics and Tourette’s Disorder

  • Duane G. Ollendick

Abstract

This chapter focuses on three forms of childhood psychopathology: transient tic disorder, chronic tic disorder, and Tourette’s disorder. Separately, these disorders occur in children relatively infrequently, but all are particularly troublesome to the children who evince them. Tic behaviors usually develop during middle childhood, and nearly always before adulthood. Within the realm of specific behavioral disorders, tic disorders represent the more general category of childhood habit disorders.
