Hi, I am new here.... my 6 year old son was recently diagnosed this week with Tourette's syndrome along with ADHD. I am interested in starting a discussion with other mom's who have children with dual diagnosis of Asperger's and Tourette's. My son is undergoing further evaluations at this time but I really think that there is more than Tourette's going on with him because of a speech problem and also repetitive behaviors and social issues. I am also a behavioral therapist with the Center for Austism and Related Disorders and have been for 10 years now, so I am very familiar with behaviors and signs in children. I just don't know very much about Tourette's and how it may be connected to Asperger's. I have also never been on this side of a diagnosis, and am probably going to have to pay for a private evaluation. My son was also given a prescription for Tennex. Any thoughts?
