NEW YORK - Children and adolescents with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), anxiety or tic disorders are being treated in a new specialized outpatient clinic at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center - one of the only programs of its kind in the New York metro area.. In addition to a clinic in Manhattan, the Pediatric OCD, Anxiety and Tic Disorders (POCAT) program will offer a unique, day camp-style intensive summer treatment program situated in White Plains, N.Y., at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Westchester Division. The POCAT program is co-led by pediatric psychologist Dr. Shannon M. Bennett and psychiatrist Dr. Justin Mohatt.. Anxiety is a normal part of growing up, but when it interferes with school, friendships or family life, we recommend parents seek treatment for their child. If a family is going to extreme measures to accommodate their childs anxiety, or if their child has a problem with involuntary movements or vocalizations, we can offer help, says Dr. ...
Modulation of cholinergic activity is a growing focus in neurologic therapeutics especially for dementing disorders such as Alzheimer disease. Treatment with the recently developed cholinesterase inhibitor, galantamine, has demonstrated significant improvement with few issues related to tolerability. In addition to inhibiting the activity of acetylcholinesterase, galantamine also modulates the activity of nicotinic cholinergic receptors by an allosteric mechanism. As a result, galantamine therapy may be beneficial when the response to other agents has been limited.. Cholinesterase inhibitor therapy has been reported to improve motor tics in children with TS refractory to more traditional therapies. Symptoms of co-morbid behavioral disorders, primarily inattention, were also improved. Cholinergic modulation appears a promising avenue for managing tic disorders.. Men and women (18 - 50 years of age) fulfilling DSM IV criteria for the diagnosis of chronic motor tic disorder, chronic vocal tic ...
CTDs and Tourette syndrome are neurobehavioral disorders that are characterized by a persistent pattern of motor and vocal tics. Tics are intermittent movements or sounds that occur repeatedly. They can be either brief, rapid, and darting movements or more purposeful movements, such as repetitively locking and unlocking a door. Vocal tics can be simple, as in sniffing or grunting, or more complex, such as complete words or phrases. Tic disorders can cause considerable distress in affected children, and can lead to social and academic impairment. If left untreated, CTDs can last into adulthood. The standard treatment for suppressing CTDs is medication; dopamine-blocking drugs are used most commonly. These medications, however, are associated with a range of adverse effects that can result in poor treatment compliance and premature treatment termination. Recent research suggests that HRT may be an effective, lower risk treatment for CTDs. HRT is a behavioral treatment based on increasing awareness ...

A small percentage of all cases of schizophrenia have a childhood onset. The impact on the individual and family can be devastating. We report the results of genetic analyses from a patient with onset of visual hallucinations at 5 years, and a subsequent diagnosis at 9 years of schizophrenia, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) with hyperactivity and impulsivity, and chronic motor tic disorder. Karyotypic analysis found 45,XX,i(13)(q10) in all cells examined. Alpha satellite FISH of isochromosome 13 revealed a large unsplit centromeric region, interpreted as two centromeres separated by minimal or undetectable short-arm material or as a single monocentric centromere, indicating that the isochromosome likely formed post-zygotically by a short arm U-type or centromeric exchange. Characterization of chromosome 13 simple tandem repeats and Affymetrix whole-genome 6.0 SNP array hybridization found homozygosity for all markers, and the presence of only a single paternal allele in informative
BACKGROUND The association of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and tic disorder (TD) is frequent and clinically important. Very few and inconclusive attempts have been made to clarify if and how the combination of ADHD+TD runs in families. AIM To determine the first time in a large-scale ADHD sample whether ADHD+TD increases the risk of ADHD+TD in siblings and, also the first time, if this is independent of their psychopathological vulnerability in general. METHODS The study is based on the International Multicenter ADHD Genetics (IMAGE) study. The present sub-sample of 2815 individuals included ADHD-index patients with co-existing TD (ADHD+TD, n = 262) and without TD (ADHD-TD, n = 947) as well as their 1606 full siblings (n = 358 of the ADHD+TD index patients and n = 1248 of the ADHD-TD index patients). We assessed psychopathological symptoms in index patients and siblings by using the Strength and Difficulties Questionnaire (SDQ) and the parent and teacher Conners long version ...

BACKGROUND: Exposure and response prevention has shown to be an effective strategy and is considered a first-line intervention in the behavioural treatment of tic disorders. Prior research demonstrated significant tic reduction after 12 two hour sessions. OBJECTIVE: In this open trial, the question is addressed whether, relative to these prolonged sessions, exposure sessions of shorter duration yield differential outcome for patients with tic disorders. METHODS: A total of 29 patients diagnosed with Tourette syndrome (TS) or chronic tic disorder were treated with shorter exposure sessions (1 h), and these data were compared to the data from a study about prolonged exposure (2 h, n = 21 ...
Objective: To investigate the status of monotherapy for newly diagnosed tic disorders and its comorbidity in children, so as to provide a reference for clinical medication. Methods: A questionnaire survey was conducted to collect the application experience of monotherapy for newly diagnosed tic disorders and comorbidities in 110 pediatric neurologists and psychiatrists from Chinese Tic Disorders Study Consortium from February to August in 2019. Doctors were asked to rate treatment options based on a rank 5-point scale with 1 least appropriate and 5 most appropriate. The drug evaluation index was based on the comparison of the median score of a single drug with the overall scores of all drugs in this disease (M (Q1, Q3)), single drug M ≥ overall Q3 was recommended as preferred drugs; overall Q1≤ single drug M < overall Q3 was considered as secondary drugs; single drug M < overall Q1 was considered as unsuitable drugs. Results: Among 110 electronic questionnaires, 94 (86%) were availably ...
Tics are sudden, rapid, recurrent movements or vocalizations that are generally experienced as irresistible. Tics are classified as either motor tics or vocal tics and can be simple or complex. Examples of motor tics are eye blinking (simple), nose wrinkling (simple), and hand gestures (complex). Examples of vocal tics are throat clearing (simple), sniffing (simple) and sudden changes in speech volume (complex). ​. Tourettes Disorder is a tic disorder characterized by multiple motor tics and one or more vocal tic. Tics occur many times per day throughout a period of more than one year.. ​. Chronic Motor or Vocal Tic Disorder involves either motor or vocal tics for at least 12 months. ...
Typically, tics begin around the age of 5 to 7 years, although earlier onset can occur. Motor tics generally appear prior to the onset of vocal tics. The most common initial presentation of a motor tic is eye blinking followed by other facial movements, which include eye movements (gazing up, down, or sideways), nose wrinkling, mouth movements, jaw stretching, and facial grimacing. Tics generally progress in a head-downward trajectory, beginning in the facial area and gradually moving downward to affect the neck, shoulders, trunk and limbs. Vocal tics most commonly begin as simple tics, such as sniffing, snorting, throat clearing and coughing. From there, they may become more complex and include emphasis on certain consonants or syllables, repetition of syllables and words, changes in pitch and volume, repeating self or others, and blurting out inappropriate comments, including coprolalia. Contrary to what the media often portray, coprolalia is actually quite rare, affecting approximately 10-15% ...
Tics are often mild and go away on their own, but when they persist, efforts should be made to learn what is causing them. A health professional may be needed to determine what type of tic disorder is present and to rule out medical conditions that can cause tics.. Symptoms of tics vary widely in severity, type, and area of the body affected. Please see our article on tic symptoms. Families can do a great deal on their own to investigate causes of tic symptoms. If you can identify triggers for the tics, you have helped determine the diagnosis. For example, many people report that exposure to certain allergens, toxic chemicals and/or foods aggravates tics. For those people, a classic diagnosis of a tic disorder is not very useful; they need to go beyond the label given in conventional medicine and explore the role of allergies and the immune system in the condition.. Currently, tics that are not due to medications or other medical conditions are categorized as one of three types 1) Tourette ...

A Placebo-Controlled Study of Selegiline in the Treatment of Children With Tic Disorders and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
Abstract Background: Although the association of the MMR vaccine with autism spectrum disorder has been convincingly disproven, the onset of certain brain-related autoimmune and inflammatory disorders has been found to be temporally associated with the antecedent administration of various vaccines. This study examines whether antecedent vaccinations are associated with increased incidence of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), anorexia nervosa (AN), anxiety disorder, chronic tic disorder, ADHD, major depressive disorder, and bipolar disorder in a national sample of privately insured children.Methods: Using claims data, we compared the prior years occurrence of vaccinations in children and adolescents ages 6 to 15 years with the above neuropsychiatric disorders that were newly diagnosed between January 2002 and December 2007, as well as two control conditions, broken bones and open wounds. Subjects were matched with controls according to age, gender, geographical area and seasonality. Conditional
Do you have the repetitive and uncontrollable urge to move a body part, make a sound, or close your eyes? These actions are known as tics and you may have Tourettes syndrome. Named after the French neurologist who first described the condition in 1885, it is considered a neurological disorder.Symptoms of TS typically first appear in childhood, often between the ages of three and nine. It occurs in all ethnic groups, although males are affected far more often than females. Although TS can have symptoms that last a lifetime, for most the worst tics are experienced in the early teens, with improvement starting in the late teens and continuing into adulthood. Other conditions can look like TS. Transient tic disorders begin during the early school years and affect perhaps 18% of children. Common tics include eye blinking, nose puckering, grimacing and squinting. Transient vocalizations are less common and include various throat sounds or humming. Transient tics may last only a few weeks or months ...
New York -- Its not all in their heads. Parents who suspected their childs strep throat caused subsequent development of obsessive compulsive (OC) or tic disorders can rest easy now that research finally confirms this relationship. The mounting evidence pointing to a link between group A Beta-hemolytic streptococci and these disorders could eventually lead to a means of identifying children at risk and the use of preventive therapy. The research is so convincing that Dr. Susan Swedo, acting scientific director at the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) and head of the NIMHs section on behavioral pediatrics, said she believes a throat culture is in order for both the child and family members when a child presents with acute onset or exacerbation of OC or tic symptoms. Our studies and others on obsessive compulsive disorder are truly proof that these are neurobiological illnesses, that what was previously thought to be due to punitive toilet training is now known to be associated with ...
Based upon experience with hundreds of adults, adolescents, and children with OCD treated at our clinic, we argue that a substantial number of OCD patients present for treatment with an identifiable variant of OCD - more precisely an OCD/TD blend. This blend is distinguishable from purer manifestations of either disorder and can be identified exclusively by phenomenological presentation. These patients or their first- degree family members may or may not have met criteria for TD or another tic disorder and may or may not have classic OCD symptoms, yet it is our position that their presentation is phenomenologically akin to both TD and OCD. Moreover, we believe that these patients express a constellation of symptoms (i.e., a syndrome) that is categorically distinct from more familiar forms of OCD, although this syndrome may coexist with OCD symptoms in many individuals. We refer to this syndrome as Tourettic OCD (TOCD) to underscore our view that these clinical manifestations are best ...

Objective: The primary aim of the study was to evaluate the effectiveness and tolerability of aripiprazole on motor and vocal tics in children and adolescents with Tourette′s disorder (TD). The secondary aim was to assess the response of TD-associated behaviors to aripiprazole exposure.. Methods: This was an 8-week, open-label trial with flexible dosing strategy of aripiprazole in children and adolescaents with TD. A total of 72 patients, aged 6-18 years, participated in the 8-week trial. The Yale Global Tic Severity Scale (YGTSS), the Clinical Global Impressions-Tics (CGI-Tics), and the Child Behavior Checklist (CBCL) were compared at the baseline, weeks 2 and 4, and end point. The side effects of aripiprazole, electrocardiogram (ECG), and body mass index (BMI) were evaluated.. Results: Over the 8-week trial, aripiprazole administration was associated with a significant decrease in total tic severity as measured by the YGTSS (50.3% reduction by week 8). The mean scores of motor tic in the ...
Tourette syndrome is found among all social, racial and ethnic groups and has been reported in all parts of the world;[3][23] it is three to four times more frequent among males than among females.[14] The tics of Tourette syndrome begin in childhood and tend to remit or subside with maturity; thus, a diagnosis may no longer be warranted for many adults, and observed prevalence rates are higher among children than adults.[28] As children pass through adolescence, about one-quarter become tic-free, almost one-half see their tics diminish to a minimal or mild level, and less than one-quarter have persistent tics. Only 5 to 14% of adults experience worse tics in adulthood than in childhood.[3][6] Up to 1% of the overall population experiences tic disorders, including chronic tics and transient tics of childhood.[57] Chronic tics affect 5% of children, and transient tics affect up to 20%.[80] Prevalence rates in special education populations are higher.[14] The reported prevalence of TS varies ...

The Massachusetts General Hospital Tourette Syndrome Clinic is a specialized multidisciplinary clinic and regional referral center for adult and pediatric patients with Tourette syndrome and other tic disorders.
A very large Danish epidemiological study of 7590 children will estimate the frequency of tics among children aged 10-12 years. The study will also examine different pre- and perinatal factors as possible contributors to the development of tics. Estimates of the prevalence of Tourette Syndrome (TS) vary greatly among different studies. The range has been reported to be anywhere from 1 to 19 per 1000 children. These large differences may be attributed to small sample sizes, different age distributions and variations in sampling and diagnostic assessment. The largest and best designed study so far identified 25 children with TS out of 4479 (6 per 1000). The present study will use an epidemiological robust design and address tics among 7590 children aged 10-12 years. It will therefore be the largest epidemiological study of tics to date. The basic causes of TS and related tic disorders are poorly understood. Genetic factors are implicated, but the inheritance is complex and not yet understood ...
If you suffer from Tourette Syndrome (TS), or any other chronic motor or vocal tic disorder, you know how difficult it can be to manage your symptoms. You may be taking medication or working with a medical doctor to control your tics.
Only about 10% of Tourettes patients exhibit coprolalia,[2] but it tends to attract more attention than any other symptom.[15]. There is a paucity of epidemiological studies of Tourette syndrome; ascertainment bias affects clinical studies. Studies on people with Tourettes often came from tertiary referral samples, the sickest of the sick.[16] Further, the criteria for a diagnosis of Tourettes were changed in 2000, when the impairment criterion was removed from the DSM-IV-TR for all tic disorders,[17] resulting in increased diagnoses of milder cases. Further, many clinical studies suffer from small sample size. These factors combine to render older estimates of coprolalia-biased towards clinical populations of the more severe cases-outdated. An international, multi-site database of 3,500 individuals with Tourette syndrome drawn from clinical samples found 14% of patients with Tourettes accompanied by comorbid conditions had coprolalia, while only 6% of those with uncomplicated (pure) ...

Rapid eye movement (REM) sleep has been shown to be related to many adaptive cognitive and behavioral functions. However, its precise functions are still elusive, particularly in developmental psychiatric disorders. The present study aims at investigating associations between polysomnographic (PSG) REM sleep measurements and neurobehavioral functions in children with common developmental psychiatric conditions compared to typically developing children (TDC). Twenty-four children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), 21 with Tourette syndrome/tic disorder (TD), 21 with ADHD/TD comorbidity, and 22 TDC, matched for age and gender, underwent a two-night PSG, and their psychopathological scores and intelligence quotient (IQ) were assessed. Major PSG findings showed more REM sleep and shorter REM latency in the children with psychiatric disorders than in the TDC. Multiple regression analyses revealed that in groups with developmental psychopathology, REM sleep proportion correlated positively

Areas. I work collaboratively with clients using evidenced-based interventions to treat a range of emotional and behavioral problems in children, adolescents, and adults. Specific interventions vary based on the problem being treated but I frequently employ behavioral and cognitive strategies, commonly referred to as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). CBT is usually a short-term treatment (typically between 12-20 sessions) that focuses on learning specific skills to reach ones goals. In the course of treatment, clients learn how their cognitions (thoughts), emotions, and behaviors are connected. CBT targets changing either the way a person thinks about a situation or by changing specific behaviors in order to reduce overwhelming emotions. This effective treatment can be used to target anxiety, depression, improve emotion regulation, and ADHD among others.
