Tourette's Syndrome (cont.)


There is no known prevention of this Tourette's syndrome. However, some of the psychological complications can be secondary to the social limitations imposed by the disease. Close monitoring of the patient for the early detection of emergent emotional disorders is very important. Also, education of the persons that relate to him/her (family members, teachers, classmates, friends) may also help to create a better environment for the child and prevent emotional issues.
