Library JournalIn this comprehensive, extensively updated edition (the first came out in 1992), Marsh returns as editor, displaying her firsthand knowledge about the overwhelming challenges facing families of children newly diagnosed with Tourette's syndrome (TS). The mother of a grown child with TS, she oversees leading field experts and experienced parents who provide information about diagnostic tools, developmental stages, coexisting conditions, and learning disabilities. New to this edition is an extensive section on medications used to treat TS and related conditions. There are also strategies for coping with the daily challenges of TS as well as a new chapter on a behavior intervention that can help control tics. A section on special education rights and individual education planning will assist parents in navigating the school arena and help them ensure that their child is receiving adequate support during the school day. A comprehensive resource guide is included, along with an extensive reading list for parents, siblings, and children living with TS. This valuable resource for parents and educators is recommended for all public libraries.
