In a community based sample of adults with developmental disabilities and mental health needs referred for team assessment, an unexpectedly high number were found to have Tourette Syndrome. The symptoms had been present since childhood, but were previously undiagnosed. This presentation will describe the varying typical and atypical presentations, impact of delayed diagnosis, habilitation, and treatment concerns.
