“What Does the Future Hold for My Child with Tics?”

Presented by Eunice Kim, Ph.D.

Parents often ask, “Will tics affect what kind of job my child can have? Will my child get to have a normal life? What kind of relationships can my child have?” This talk will help parents understand the course of tic disorders, factors that affect prognosis and functioning, and the effectiveness of behavioral interventions.
