my 7 year old has just been diagnosed with tourettes syndrome after a very long process and lots of appointments he was first seen at the age of 4 this was when i was taken seriously. But i had been persuing people for answers since he was roughly 5 months old! I now face a long ongoing battle with his school to get things right for him, up until they recieved the report saying he does indeed have tourettes he has been labelled a naughty boy and is always getting told of for and i quote "making silly noises" "disturbing other children in class" etc etc etc. Thjey have tried to label him with autism, asperges, adhd or just plain old bad behavour. Luckily i have had the professionals on my side the whole time who were never convinced of any of these conditions and helped me fight my corner. However now I have had a diagnoses i fill very alone suddenly I have to know what to do and how to deal with this. To be honest im still very much learning about what ts entails and my head is about to burst.
Is there anybody who has a child with ts who might have suggestions in the best ways to deal with it at school?? any suggestions would be greatly apprieciated as I am still very new to all this.
