Tourette syndrome (TS) is a neurological condition, which is marked by repetitive involuntary movements and vocalisations known as tics. The condition usually begins between ages 3 and 9 years.
Children and adolescents with Tourette’s Syndrome (TS) report significantly more sleep problems than their non-TS peers. For children or teenagers with Tourette Syndrome, sleep onset may be delayed because they first have to “get their tics out.” They lie down to go to bed and may tic explosively or vigorously for an hour or more. But other sleep problems also interfere with getting a good sleep.
