Roger Freeman is considered a world expert in developmental neurology. In this book he shares his vast experience on tic disorders in an informal but highly informative style. He discusses recent advances in the identification and management of tic disorders that many clinicians may be unfamiliar with.

Extensive reference lists provide a rich resource for the both the clinician and the researcher.

I highly recommend it for anyone with an interest in Tourette syndrome at any level.' Lynne Romeiser Logan, American Academy for Cerebral Palsy & Developmental Medicine Newsletter, 2016

'The highlights of this book are case-based examples and practice points that make it distinct from other books. A wonderful and easy read. I recommended it for use by all pediatricians'. Shefali Gulati, Indian Journal of Pediatrics, 2016

'This is an excellent resource in which to invest. It will undoubtedly help individuals working with these complex cases obtain a better understanding of the skill base required to discuss aspects of tics, Tourette syndrome, and developing movement difficulties with families, thereby helping them manage the wider issues of this patient group in the most optimal way.' Tammy Hedderly, Developmental Medicine & Child Neurology, 2015

'This is an excellent guide to the clinical management issues involved in treating individuals with TS. For clinicians treating patients with this disorder, this book will be a great resource. I highly recommend it.' Michael Schrift, DO, MA, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine
