Attention Deficit Disorder, either the inattentive, hyperactive, or combined type is fairly common in patients with Tourette syndrome. Furthermore, impulse control disorders are common as well. Frequently, the functional impact of these conditions outweighs the impact of tics in the lives of these patients. This webinar will define both disorders and explore best ways to manage them in children and adults with Tourette syndrome.
