JMARLAR-- I took my son to see a neurologist after his pediatrician noticed his tics. The pediatrician wanted to rule out tourette's disorder. As it turns out it was not ruled out but diagnosed. Since your son is experiencing tics, it would probably be a good idea since tics are the most common symptom of tourettes. There are other symptoms as well and you may want to look up the disorder on the internet to get more info. The diagnosis took my husband and myself by surprise but forwarned is forarmed and having this info has helped with med prescribing as well as intervention in school. Hope this helps. Post again if you would like any other info. My son has been officially diagnosed with tourettes disorder with co-morbid adhd and also aspergers. If you look up any of these disorders on the web you will see that a lot of the symptoms overlap.
