Types of TS
TS can be classified into roughly three types, corresponding to three levels of severity and complexity. Attention deficit disorder (ADHD) and obsessive compulsive behaviours (OCB) often occur together with TS, and make it even harder to deal with.
This is illustrated below.
Movement and sound tics only.

The information is a general guide, and should be treated with caution. Tics and behaviours vary widely, and it is perfectly possible, for example, to have OCB and sleep disorders without coprolalia.
