  1. We have had success with CBT/Habit Reversal! My son is 11 and has had tics since he was 5. Last year was by far his worst year for tics so we looked to try some new options. We were referred to a doctor for CBT/Habit reversal. He worked with my son on coming up with competing responses for specific tics. For example, when my son was "jumping" he would have him stand like a soldier and do relaxation breathing. This helped him to stop the jumping (which had become very problematic at school) within a week. My son saw this doctor weekly from August 2012-August 2013. Each week they decided what they wanted to work on. I am still in touch with the doctor but we decided to stop appointments in September because my son was doing so well. We are located the Northern VA area.
