In our webinar, we learned about some effective strategies for helping kids and teens with Tourette Syndrome, especially through their formative school years. Why and when tics should be treated was a topic of discussion and that most individuals do not need medication to suppress tics but if medication is indicated well planned drug holidays may help to define need continuing need for medication, but abruptly stopping medication as a test of ongoing need for treatment is inappropriate.
