Individuals with TS often present with significant difficulty processing and integrating sensory information, and this impacts their responses to daily life events. This webinar will describe the variety of sensory processing and integration problems that are typically seen and discuss their impact on behavior and functional motor skills. Strategies that are used to treat the symptoms of these sensory difficulties and foster more appropriate responses to sensation will be described.
