Facing a new TS, ADHD, OCD & anxiety diagnosis

My name is Vanessa, and my 7 year old daughter, Angelina was recently diagnosed with Tourettes, ADHD, OCD, anxiety, and a possible language processing delay. Her symptoms are on the mild side.  I am new to all this and I have many questions. Talking to other parents going through the same thing is the best way to learn about all this.



  1. Vanessa, I have found that diet plays a big picture in many of the conditions your child has. Sugar often times is the culprit . Sugar seems to be added to most things, especially the food that kids like.

  2. Hi Vanessa. I am the mom of two children with TS, generalized anxiety disorder and rage disorder. Both were diagnosed at 5 and are now 11 and 8. I’d love to offer you support. I got through the early months/years after my eldest’s diagnosis thanks to other TS parents. Please reach out anytime: emily@golden-resources.com.

  3. Hi Vanessa. My 7 1/2 year old son was recently diagnosed with TS, OCD, anxiety and possible ADHD as well. It’s only been about two months since his diagnoses and we are still learning. Although I can think back and he’s had tics and OCD issues for at least a year. I am learning that for him he has good days and bad days. We recently withdrew him from school to homeschool (I stay at home). He was in trouble constantly at school for what appeared to be misbehavior but in reality it’s all of the above.

  4. Vanessa my son has also just been diagnosed with TS, he has had motor and vocal tics for as long as i can remember. Kids with TS usually also have Adhd, Ocd, Austim and anxiety. My son also has Non verbal learning disorder, Anxiety, Odd, Mood disorder and Ocd traits. I know its alot and can be overwhelming, but with the right, teachers ,drs and therapists by your side that really helps.
