Abstract Tourette Syndrome (TS) is recognized as a more common neurodevelopmental disorder than once thought. In this article we present an update on TS including the DSM-5 revised criteria, new findings in the genetics of TS, treatment advances such as new medications for tics and the use of new tools including Cognitive Behavioral Intervention for Tics (CBIT). We also explore supportive services for the ongoing care of patients using nursing education and family therapy.
