Dr. Jorge Juncos, a neurologist at Emory University in Atlanta, explains, "The child at some point begins to think of himself as the embodiment of that problem."
Dr. Juncos says: "The most important thing starts at home. Usually it comes in the form of family. Once they come to the realization of what this condition is and how it operates, they sort of make a turnaround and go from judgmental to accepting to supportive to loving."
He says the tics tend to level off as the child gets older, and it becomes easier to cope. "And it's not a progressive illness," says Dr. Juncos, "so that you have the odds stacked in your favor.

Wolf and Dr. Jorge L. Juncos are at the end of a three-year study of the effect of tai chi, qi gong and aerobic training on Parkinson's patients.
Eastern" test, Juncos, associate professor of neurology at Emory, hopes to determine whether the mental training of tai chi and qi gong will be equivalent to the "huffing and puffing" of a more physical regimen.
"It would be fascinating," says Juncos, "if the mind body component overcomes the caloric expenditure."
Morrill, 48, has worked with Wolf and Juncos in their studies of tai chi, Parkinson's and the elderly.
Her patient repetitions and soothing voice proved perfect for the task, says Juncos, and the question for studies elsewhere is, "Can we do this without Cate?"
Morrill likes incorporating tai chi moves as a component of everyday life.Hence, she suggests interpreting "wind blows the lotus leaves" this way: "You pick up the pot from the sink, you turn and put it on the stove."
