Symptoms of Tourette’s Disorder usually first appear during early childhood (ages 7–10) as a mild tic in the head or neck area. Over time, additional motor and vocal tics develop and begin to occur more frequently.
Tic Disorders often first appear during childhood and adolescence (ages 5–17), and are classified according to their duration and severity.
