mylittleangel Posted March 28, 2013 Report Share Posted March 28, 2013 After a long five years of dealing with Tourettes, I finally found a doctor that I connect with and trust. My son is on 5 mg of Abilify and our new doctor has laid out a plan. My son, who is 9 1/2, will start CBiT next Monday (there are only 3 doctors in Ontario who do this therapy) with the social worker from his clinic. He said they have had wonderful results and they can start treatment at age 9. We will have 8-10 sessions and hopefully this will provide my son with enough tools to be able to apply this technique to his most distressing tics (a loud squeak is the worst one). After he finishes the CBiT, we will slowly wean him off the Abilify. My only concern is that the child has to be really willing to put in the hard work that this technique calls for. They are not sure he is ready.I will keep you posted. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
