Tourette Syndrome can present a variety of behavior challenges, often due to the children having difficulty communicating, regulating demands and expectations, and trying to meet their physical and emotional needs.
We’d like to know what you as a parent of a child with TS has experienced. Could you take just a few moments to leave us a comment with the answers to the following questions? We’d really appreciate it, and of course, your answers will better help everyone raise and care for children with Tourette!
- What behavior challenges do you experience?
- Do you know what usually triggers the behavior?
- Do you know what function the behavior serves for the child (what is he communicating or trying to get from the behavior)?
- How are you currently dealing with challenges now? How do you support the child and how to you intervene on the behavior.
Whether you can answer all four of these questions or only the first one, please share with us! Thank you!
