Hello, my 11-year-old has a vocal tic disorder. They say it’s not Tourette because it’s just vocal tics so far. Hers started about 3 years ago with just a weird throat clearing sound, then she added a whimper and now it’s any hard letter sound squeals and chirps and this weird “shweh”-type sound.
Her tics have recently became so frequent her teacher has asked for a 504 plan so that she can have permission to leave the room when the tics are bothering her. Her neurologist just this week started her on Topamax to help her get some relief. Any suggestions for me to take to the 504 meeting?
