The cultural impact of environmental reactions to tics

Posted on 8 August 2018 by Helen Robbins


Under the direction of Dr. Douglas Woods, the Tic Disorders Clinic at Marquette University (USA) is looking for parents of children with tic disorders to complete a questionnaire examining the cultural impact of environmental reactions to tics.

For the study, you would complete an anonymous online questionnaire relating to your reactions to your child’s tics, your child’s tic severity, your child’s impairment attributed to tics and other behaviors, your parenting style, your emotions, and your social identity. The questionnaire should take approximately 30 minutes to complete.


To be eligible for the study, you have to:

•             Be at least 18 years old

•             Be the parent or guardian of a child who meets the criteria for Tourette’s Disorder or Persistent (Chronic) Tic                        Disorder

•             Be living in the same household as your child

•             Be able to read and write English


Here is the link for the questionnaire:
