    I bought this book to help me to recognise and understand my son who has Tourette's (TS). There are 5 sections to the book plus an appendix, each of which are broken down into short, easy chapters which can be referenced easily if and when needed:Section 1: Basic information about TS, OCD and Associated disorders.Section 2: Understanding the impact of TS and OCDSection 3: Checklists for ParentsSection 4: Checklists for TeachersSection 5: Other helpful Checklists for Parents & TeachersAppendix: Real-life Scenarios (Motor & Vocal tics, OCD & Anxiety, Dysgraphia, Behaviour Plans, Executive Dysfunction, Misc)It is aimed for people living in the USA but the information surrounding TS and the associated orders is still very valuable and the author herself shares a lot of insight and understanding to this complex syndrome. Highly recommended if you're trying to get an understanding and don't know where to start.

    I wish this book had been available back when I was in grade school. I didn't get diagnosed with OCD until after I graduated college in my 20s, and it was only discovered as an indirect result of therapy & medical tests after a bad car accident. (I often wonder how an earlier diagnosis might have improved my daily living.) Around that same time I became a tutor (often with students who would fit several of the descriptions in this book), and continued to do so until my son was born; now I homeschool. So, I was interested in this book because of myself, my tutoring/teaching & simply wanting to be more understanding of these conditions.I found the book easy to follow, and it gave me a solid understanding of several other disorders that I do not have any personal experiences with. I don't think you have to be involved in education to appreciate this material. The author Susan Connors, who also has TS herself, takes a comprehensive approach to providing helpful resources. I've always thought someone who has suffered through these situations would have a better grasp on what is useful & what is not; Connors definitely provides some real practical guidance, just as the cover states.

    useful and concise. Helpful for anyone with a newly diagnosed child, and for anyone realising that they have had tourettes all their lives but never understood the condition in it's entirety.

    This book is brilliant if you have day to day issues with people with tourettes. I found it extremely useful in explaining all about tourettes and the different tics that it can create.
