What is Comprehensive Behavior Intervention for Tics?

Dr. Katrina Lindsay, PhD, NCSP, of the Akron Children’s Hospital, explains the types of tics in cases of Tourette’s and other involuntary movement disorders. She delves into the types of simple and complex tics, how they are caused, the differences between tics and Tourettes, and how they can be identified. While family history and environment are factors that can induce tics, Dr. Lindsay reviews some of the ways she is working with schools and other doctors to improve treatment and management of these symptoms.
