Collaborative Genomic Studies of Tourette Disorder
What is the goal of the study?
The goal of this study is to look for genetic factors that play a role in causing Tourette disorder and related disorders such as Chronic Tics disorders (CT). We also want to find out why some members of a family are affected with these disorders and others are not.
Who can participate in the study?
This study may be a good fit for children who have been diagnosed with Tourette Disorder or Chronic Tic Disorders. We are also asking both biological parents to participate to better understand what inherited and non-inherited traits may explain why some children have these conditions.
