Event description

Description

Tourette syndrome is a chronic neurological disorder that starts in childhood and can continue through adolescence and into adulthood. Its main feature is involuntary tics—sudden twitches, movements, or vocal sounds that occur repeatedly—that can get in the way of everyday activities. Psychiatrists, neurologists, and psychologists work together to diagnose tics and Tourette disorder and to develop a comprehensive care plan for children and adults with the condition.

The Tics, Tourette Disorder, and Trichotillomania Program, or T3 Program, at the Child Study Center is hosting a one-day symposium to showcase multidisciplinary research and clinical application of innovative treatments for tics and Tourette's Disorder at NYU Langone Health.

There will be highlights from other departments—including psychiatry, neurology, and neurosurgery—regarding relevant evidence-based clinical interventions and treatments. This symposium also provides an open dialogue between families of patients, health care professionals, and a panel of experts occurring at the end of the symposium.
