Format: Paperback
This is the first book I've read about TS, my son being recently diagnosed. I found it informative without the 'waffle' and thought it gave a good overview into what the future holds for my child. It covers the link between TS and ADHD/OCD and gives guidance in how to deal with the various motor and vocal tics on a day-to-day basis, the assistance your child should expect to receive throughout school, how to deal with incidents of bullying, ways of helping your child's self-esteem, anger management and also ways to cope with the stares and comments from people on the street. I hope the next reader finds this as informative as I did.

9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Roger Sharp VINE VOICE on 2 Dec. 2006
Format: Paperback
There are some excellent books that attempt to explain the complexity of TS. Some have been written by people with the condition (ie James McConnel, "Life Interupted"), some from the view of the concerned parent, and some by professionals in the field.

Isobel Heyman is a highly qualified medical expert working in several of the UK's top hospitals that run clinics for people with TS.

Perhaps her main success in writing this book is that she can draw from a wide range of personal experience, and then has the ability to convey her knowledge to those without any medical training.

Although she deals with the condition and those other conditions that often are associated with it, combined with an overview of the current thinking behind modern treatments, she is honest enough to explain just how very hard those with the condition may find it to obtain any degree of relief given the current state of medical knowledge.

At the same time, many readers will find it a comfort to read a book such as this that has been so obviously written by an expert with a deep sense of compassion for her patients.

I'd rate it has essential reading for anyone with an interest in the subject.

Format: Paperback
I found this book very informative in a way that everyone can undestand you do not have to know a lot about the illness as this book very clearly answers your questions in a way that all ages can understand, i found that it was of great comfort making clear lots of diffrent information including medication, it's uses and affects and other things that can happen with tourette's, this was the first book that for me was giving clear and readable information, i would like to see every school and child friendly place carry this book as a form of good information for all parents as well as those who have children with tourettes, in my opinion you can buy this book with conferdence.
