Tourette Syndrome, a neurological disease, affects thousands of people. Symptoms, such as involuntary motor and verbal tics, usually begin to show themselves before the individual hits adolescence. While there is, at present, no cure, TS can be treated.

More than just a medical text, Living with Tourette Syndrome also presents the personal story of the author, Elaine Fantle Shimberg, and her search for diagnosis and treatment for three of her five children. Because the symptoms of TS can disrupt and damage self-image and personal, school, and work relationships, Shimberg's sound and compassionate advice is invaluable to those who suffer from the syndrome, as well as for family, friends, teachers, and coworkers.

Living with Tourette Syndrome does much to dispel the myths about TS and provides sensible advice, comfort, and hope for anyone affected by the disorder.

"This is the book for anyone with Tourette Syndrome and for anyone who knows anyone with Tourette Syndrome." -Archie A. Silver, M.D., professor and Director of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, University of South Florida.
