I suspect my son has tourette's and have noticed symptons for 6 mo. I am currently trying to get him diagnosed. Until reading this message board I was addressing it mostly as a social disorder and not stressing too much about what is in store for us. My son is not yet 3. He has a series of facial tics and a complex vocal tic of stuttering. He will also go through periods of anger. Weeks where we'd like to have the "Super Nanny" stay with us and then he's back to his old self. After reading this message board I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed of what we might be facing in the future. I realize that most children don't get diagnosed until a much older age and I worry that because he is so young, the severity of his tics will increase. As we are trying to compile information about this disorder, I find it discouraging. Discouraging as to the certainty of my son's future. I realize that information is power and I am trying to empower my family to deal with this syndrome.
