About Tourette's Syndrome
Tourette's syndrome is a neurobehavioral (brain-based) movement disorder characterized by motor and vocal tics. Beginning in childhood, it causes those affected to make movements and noises they cannot control. Additionally, many with T.S. also have associated disorders such as obsessive-compulsive disorder, attention-deficit-hyperactivity disorder and/or learning problems. Although medication may help control the symptoms, as of yet there is no cure. The Tourette Syndrome Association of Texas, one of the largest TSA Chapters in the country, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We raise funds to directly assist Texas area families and children in crisis, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
