Tics and Tourette Syndrome
Dr Chowdhury offers advice on how to manage symptoms, describing practical techniques such as habit reversal and massed practice and reviewing available medical treatments. In clear, accessible language, this book explains the clinical signs and symptoms of Tourette and related conditions, and their possible causes.
Chowdhury provides us with a handbook that is both academic and self help. This book defines Tourette Syndrome and associated disorders and the medications traditional and non-traditional used to treat them while at the same time, acknowledging the expertise of the parents by providing instructional chapters on helping their children deal with bullying and how to improve self esteem. This is truly a handbook worth reading and keeping close at hand as it offers other helpful insight and suggestions on how to get your child to do the things that you want him to, how to praise him and suggestions on setting limits and time-outs.

This book is easy to read and without jargon. All through the book, Dr Chowdhury makes references to the research behind the clinical advice that he gives.
As well as giving good information about the diagnosis of tics and TS, he takes a broad perspective of TS and looks at the effects of TS on the whole person including emotional, educational and functional effects. The writing is clear and easy to understand without being patronizing and it is well-referenced to allow the keen reader to explore the area further.
Tics and Tourette Syndrome – A Handbook for Parents and Professionals
One of the things that most strikes me about the book is that it could only have been written by someone with extensive clinical experience of people with TS and by someone who has clearly listened and responded to the concerns of people with TS and their families. As well as covering the theoretical aspects of TS, the book also contains numerous practical strategies for managing anger, self-esteem problems and problems in the classroom.
