What is Tourette Syndrome?
Tourette Syndrome is a neurological condition characterised by tics (involuntary movements and noises). There are many excellent qualities that are also associated with TS such as having strong verbal skills, tenacity, creativity, empathy, and hyper-focus. At Genius Within we work with clients to amplify these talents and to manage challenges.
Different for everyone
It is a misconception that all people with TS make severe movements or shout obscenities. Many people have less noticeable tics such as throat clearing or eye blinking. Tics that involve rude language or gestures are known as Coprolalia and Copropraxia and are only experienced by around 10% of people with the condition. Tourette Syndrome also commonly co-occurs with ADHD.
Helping to find your Genius Within
Our clients with Tourette Syndrome most commonly ask for help with the following areas:
- Time Management
- Communicating Verbally
- Motor Control
Everyone we work with has a bespoke plan that best matches their needs, this may include strategies on the above areas or it might include other areas where they feel they need more support to work at their best.
