My son was referred to Cahms in the summer and was assessed by a pysch nurse who wrote he meets the criteria for a diagnosis of tourettes. I now realise he has had ts forever and he is not that fussed now he nows what it is. He can suppress it doing school lessons but otherwise tics every day virtually all day. Has he been diagnosed officially, if not should I push it and if I do will he get some offer of therapy/med? Also later on he wont be able to cope sitting in an exam hall in silence. Forgot to mention he is already under a paediatrician for sld and sensory difficulties which means he has melatonin prescribed to help him sleep.
