Product Description

Hey. Got tics? You’re not alone. Up to one in five kids will have at least one tic at some point. Including the guy who wrote this book!

Dr. B. Duncan McKinlay, Psychologist (‘Dr. Dunc’) has Tourette Syndrome. That means he’s been living with both motor tics (movements he has a hard time stopping) and phonic tics (noises he has a hard time stopping) for most of his life. He knows firsthand how annoying, embarrassing, misunderstood, painful, and disruptive tics can be. For years, he’s been educating people all around the world by means of his presentations and website, and through appearances on television, in magazines, and on film. Now, in Nix Your Tics!, he wants to share with you a well-established, evidence-based practice* he uses to manage tic symptoms in both himself and in his patients.

5.0 out of 5 stars a great first step in stopping tics 7 November 2016
By hrp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
My 10 year old has a few mild tics that under certain situations become quite pronounced. This book has been helpful for me in changing my response to them. I have talked to my son about the main ideas in this book and told him that when he is ready he can work on eliminating them. Now, as we both do our best to ignore his tics and he knows he can fight them when and if he needs to, I find that they are becoming less of a problem.
