Studies have reported high prevalence of children with TS having difficulties in academic performance. The exact mechanism contributing to poor academic performance is not known. Circumstantial evidence suggests children with TS experience challenges in handwriting that may be attributed to their tics. The purpose of this study was to examine the link between TS and handwriting in children.
