Quality of Life, Comorbidities, and Health Service Utilization for Youth with Tic Disorders
- Norín Dollard, PhD
This project will generate information about continuities and discontinuities of clinical presentation, perception of self, access to care, and treatment strategies for youth with Tic disorders spanning four developmental phases (early and middle childhood, and early and late adolescence) that will allow us to identify characteristics of each phase for those most at risk for persistent unmet treatment needs and for poor outcomes.
- Describe the children and youth receiving treatment for Tic disorders.
- Better understand access and feasibility of current treatments.
- Increase the understanding of the role of support, resilience, and coping among these children and their families.
