What is Tic Disorder Treatment?

CBIT is a non-medication treatment that has been clinically proven to reduce tic severity. It is a highly structured therapy consisting of 3 components:

  • Awareness training: Families will learn to become aware of their tics such as when they tic and what environments make them tic.
  • Competing response training: Competing response training involves learning a specific behavior/action that makes the tic more difficult to do as soon as the tic or urge appears which helps reduce, and in some cases even eliminate the tic.
  • Social Support: Making changes in day-to-day activities in ways that can be helpful in reducing tics.
