This will greatly contribute to our understanding of Tourette Syndrome and may help develop new therapies in the future. This study requires the collection of biological samples and completion of a questionnaire from a child and both biological parents, can be done in-person or remotely, and participation will be compensated with a $100 Amazon gift card.
