What a difference 2 weeks can make. During that time my son has started a new vocal tic that is very noticable and is interfering with his ability to clearly communicate. I had a friend at work who is a speech pathologist review video tape of Andrew and she said no question, it's more than just a typical speech issue. So with her help, I finally got the doctor to refer us to a neurologist, so now we wait. Likely for a few months. Blah. They are also sending him for an EEG to check for seizure activity, so of course we don't even know for certain if this is TS yet, but the doctor asked (without me even bringing it up) if there was a history of TS in the family (which there isn't), and also how long he has been having tics. I thought it interesting that he just assumed that was what they were. Kind of clued me in that TS is what they suspect it will turn out to be. Everything I read in the literature is dead on for Andrew and puts pieces together we didn't even know at first might have been TS. I just thought they were strange or quirky behaviors.
So that is why I need some help. This is all very new to me and I know I don't know half of what I should before seeing the experts. I was wondering what questions would be helpful to ask once we see the neurologist. Please feel free to share those questions you wished you had asked, or those you were glad you did. All input is welcome.
Thank you so much in advance for any ideas or advice,
