  • Hello

    Hi - I am new here. My son hasn't been diagnosed with tourettes yet, we are waiting for an appointment with a pediatrician. But, I suspect mild tourettes. I will post my main question in the general discussion area.

    Welcome Tracy!

    Glad you found the TSFC Forum. Your approach in seeking a competent diagnosis is your best course. Have a conversation with your son's Ped to satisfy yourself he/she has had sufficient experience diagnosing Tourette Syndrome to make an informed diagnosis.

    Since Tourette has to be diagnosed by observation, the physician needs to have had training and experience with the disorder.

    You must be a partner in your son's health care and it is accepted practice to ask one's physician for a referral to a specialist for a consultation and second opinion.

    Please keep us informed of your progress and feel free to ask all your questions here.

    Hope you find the TSFC Forum helpful,

    Dum spiro spero....While I breathe, I hope
