Tourette Syndrome (TS) is an inherited, neurological disorder characterized by uncontrollable sounds and movements called tics. TS is much more common than most people think, affecting as many as one in 100 individuals. In 2004, the NJ Center for Tourette Syndrome & Associated Disorders received funding from the state to create a Center of Excellence to provide referrals, programs, and services to support families, public outreach and awareness campaigns, and education for school and healthcare professionals.
